Cancel CBSE Term 2 Exam, Impossible To Cover 50% Syllabus In 60 Days; Say Students
CBSE is likely to conduct the Class 10 and 12 Board exams in March-April; and the duration of the Term 2 exams is likely to be of two hours
Amid the wait for the Class 10 Term 1 result announcement, students continue to demand cancellation of the CBSE Term 2 exams citing various reasons. It seems, apart from the surge in Covid-19 cases, lack of completion of syllabus has also become a cause of concern for the students.
While some of them are demanding the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) to cancel the exam citing risk to life due to the recent rise in Covid infections, a section of students are bent on their cancellation demand stating that it is not at all feasible for them to cover 50 per cent syllabus in 60 days.
These students have also urged the intervention of the Central government. “The Board had given us around 7-8 months time for the Term 1 exam which covered 50 per cent of our syllabus. Now, for the Term 2 exam, which covers the rest 50 per cent syllabus, we have got only two months,” said a student.
The government should pay attention to our concerns and must intervene. Writing the Term 2 exams without completion of the syllabus is nothing more than deceiving self. Has anyone thought about the ramifications it will have on a student’s career? Students will suffer while taking entrance exams post the Class 12 Board exam, he reasoned.
Raising the same issue, a Twitterati wrote, “8months were given for term1which covered50% syllabus based on MCQs Pattern and now2months are given to cover term2syllabus which will also gonna to cover50% remaining syllabus which will based on Subjective mode. wahh kya equality hain.”
“Make term 2 MCQ at least to reduce our stress it’s impossible to study a descriptive paper with 50% syllabus in a month. While we got 8 Months for a MCQ paper. How do you expect us to study a descriptive paper in such a short time at least make it MCQ,” wrote another Twitter user.
CBSE is likely to conduct the Class 10 and 12 Board exams in March-April. The duration of the Term 2 exams is likely to be of two hours; questions will be of subjective type. The final result of students will be decided on the basis of 50-50 per cent marks of Term 1 and Term 2 exams.
