Students across the country, who will be appearing for CBSE Board Exams and other Board exams, are asking the Education Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal ‘Nishank’ to postpone the examination in 2021 in the middle of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
The majority of Twitter users have been sending their questions using the #EducationMinisterGoesLive hashtag after the Minister declared that he will be going live on December 10 to answer all the queries regarding upcoming examinations.
These users, who claim to be either Board Exam candidates or Medical and Engineering aspirants, are posting many different problems on Twitter, hoping that their voices will be heard.
Exams At Hand; Students Worried
JEE Main 2021 and NEET 2021 candidates have also asked for a postponement of exams and are waiting for the final syllabus to be announced.
Mr. Pokhriyal is expected to answer all the doubts of students in a webinar scheduled on December 10.
“Please postpone the board exam to MAY at least. We want 3 months offline classes, for better preparation, so we all are requesting you to please postpone the board exam to MAY,” a student said on social media, using #EducationMinisterGoesLive
Another student wrote – “Sir please postpone Class 10th Board Examination; my school teachers haven’t completed the syllabus yet.”
One student asked on the exams to be postponed till after there is “face-to-face” teaching as students are finding it hard to “catch-up with the syllabus”.
Many students posted complaints regarding poor quality of notes while being shown online. Students also shared screenshots of their online classes.
“The quality of online class is not good due to network problem due to which we aren’t able to understand concepts.”, one student said.
Sharing a screenshot of his online class, another wrote – “I would like to request to @DrRPNishank to pass all the students of session 2020-21 because there has been no proper studies this year.”
The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) and NTA are yet to announce exam 2021 dates after Education Minister’s proper consultation with teachers, parents and students.
