Respect for exams
Corona has increased its strike and its results are beginning to show. Eventually, the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) was forced to postpone the 12th board examinations and cancel the 10th examinations. After the transition progressed, before the meeting proposed under the leadership of the Prime Minister, it seemed that the government was going to take a big decision.
When the infection cases in the country have reached close to two lakhs every day, then it is not right to collectively sit together and take the examination of the children. The tenth examination was already postponed a lot, but now it was impossible to postpone it, so the government considered it good for everyone to cancel it. Since the 12th examination is necessary for further professional studies, the government wants to wait for it appropriately.
The decisions taken in the meeting of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Union Education Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank and Union Education Secretary and other top officials should be welcomed. Despite all the security arrangements, taking the exam from May 4 to June 14 is not empty of danger.
Now states will also be able to take decisions about board exams.
According to the critical judgment, internal assessment will only pass students in tenth standard. Apparently, this is not fair with children who had been preparing for this exam for years.
However, it is not that children deprived of Class X examination will not get a chance again. When the effect of corona will be less, then the government will conduct the tenth exam and it will be able to include all the children, who will not be satisfied with the internal assessment. As far as the exams of class 12 are concerned, the government will take a decision on June 1, after seeing the condition of Corona in the country.
The time has come, now education authorities will have to think of a better alternative to the traditional exam. Cancelling examinations is not good for the educational quality of the country. Leaders who have demanded the cancellation of examinations in the interest of students should also consider such an examination structure so that students can be properly examined and properly evaluated even during disasters like Corona.
The method of evaluation of the students going to pass the tenth should also be transparent, so that the students can be satisfied. The government and the board will also have to decide the scale of internal assessment, on which all schools will have to be restricted to run. This decision of the government has also sent a message among the students that every examination should be taken seriously while studying.
May be in the future does not give us the chance of final examination and the school or board will start the current assessment on the basis of earlier performance. Therefore, this decision of the government taken in the opposite situation is a lesson for the students, whose light will always come forward.
