CBSE Board Exams 2020: Parents Demand Cancellation of July 2020 Exams
NEW DELHI: In the wake of the Novel Coronavirus, parents of the wards are protesting for cancellation of CBSE Board exams which is all set to be conducted from July 1 to 15. The parents show their disapproval to this decision of the HRD Minister of conducting the exams in such a risky situation.
Parents, therefore, planned to start a ‘Tweetathon’ on Friday in order to gain the HRD Minister’s attention. The parents are afraid that in July, the Coronavirus case will spike as per the ground situation of the present time. They are in fear with regard to their ward’s health and feel that the lives of their wards are more important than appearing in the Board examination.
“In March when the cases were too less, everything was shut down at the stroke of a pen. And now when cases have shot up dramatically and could to be at a peak in July, they want children to come out and sit for exams. This is sheer lack of planning and consideration towards the health and the well-being of the future of this country” said one of the parents of two children, as reported by the Times Of India.
On the other hand, the students are really worried about managing the assignments and preparing for the Board examinations at the same time.
“The examinations were called off abruptly before students could fathom out the reason behind it. Then, they were promoted to the next Class and struggled to understand the new subjects and deal with the tests and assignments in the absence of teachers around us. Now suddenly we have to manage both the assignments of class 11 and give exams for Class 10. We are not machines, said one of the students, speaking to the Times Of India.
Earlier, the CBSE Board released the revised Class 10 and 12 exam dates 2020, the exams are all set to be conducted from July 1 to 15, 2020.
