The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) can probably allow students to graduate via a special marking program if the Board examinations of grade 12 students are postponed to March because of a COVID-19 pandemic. If students are not satisfied by the new CBSE marking system, they can take an exam later in the year to boost their results, according to the article of the Indian Express. Some of the tests, which were to be conducted in March this year were postponed due to Coronavirus outbreak and were reported to be taken in July. The report said, however, that CBSE suggested an alternative method.
Citing a few official sources, the IE study said that the analysis of the number of coronavirus cases in the country from 1 July to 15 July is unable to be performed. The Board believes it can disadvantage students and affect their admission into higher education institutions if the exams are further postponed. In India, there have already been examinations for Class 12 students by around 19 States and union territories, including Kerala, Telangana, Tamil Nadu , Karnataka, Bihar, Uttar Pradesh, Chhattisgarh and Jharkhand.
In this context, states that are already examined will soon begin admission for universities / colleges and students from the CBSE will miss their opportunity to apply if exams are delayed beyond 15 July, the report stresses. The report stresses. Consequently , it is important that CBSE develop an alternative that does not result in a student disadvantage.
In addition , the report states that CBSE has discussed this with the HRD Minister and will probably produce the final announcement on the issue by next week. The Board must also answer a plea to the Supreme Court in which many parents are questioning the feasibility of exams in July.
Of course, computer sciences (old and new), Hindi (core and elective), Geographics, Business studies, Economics, Information Technology, Biotechnology and Information (old and new) are awaiting examinations for classes 12. Whilst these tests are possible in July, it was stated in the report that national entry examinations such as the JEE (Main and Advanced) and the NEET will not be discontinued.
