SunstarTV Bureau: Union Education Minister, Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank is going to interact with the teachers, regarding the student’s demands to postpone the CBSE board exam in view of Covid-19 pandemic, today.
As per reports, students need more time to study as their classes were delayed due to the pandemic and the syllabus is yet to be completed in school, which seems that the course will not be completed by March. Students have demanded that the government must consider the option to postpone the exam at least by 60 days.
However, several schools have started conducting the pre-board exams in online mode, even though the Ministry of Education (MoE) is yet to decide on the CBSE board exam dates and has already clarified that the exams will be held offline mode only.
According to the sources, teachers are saying they have completed the academic syllabus for the board classes, and are now conducting the exams in online mode but are also exploring measures to hold physical exams next month to ensure that students are fully prepared ahead of the CBSE board exams.
