The haze around examinations getting cleared!
The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) is expected to conduct Class 12th Board exams from July 15 to August 26.
The exact date sheet for the same will be released on June 1 after the education board holds a review meeting to access the feasibility of holding exams. The mode of exam will be offline.
There will be certain changes in the pattern of exams different from the regular protocol. CBSE had suggested either holding exams only of Major subjects OR holding exams for 1.5 hours instead of three hours. The majority of states have supported the latter option in the meeting held between high-profile ministers and state education secretaries.
If Plan B, i.e. to conduct the exam for 1.5 hours (90 minutes) is adopted, there will only be MCQs and very short type questions in the exam to allow students to complete the exam in the given time. Students will have to appear in one language and three elective subjects. The tentative date sheet for this option is the first phase of exams from July 15 to August 1 and the second phase from August 8-26. Also, the exams could be on Sundays also.

CBSE also suggested that in plan B, students get an option of appearing for exams in a later stage too, in case if a student misses an exam due to COVID-19 related issue, they can appear for the boards about 15 days later, however, if this facility will be offered or not will be known on June 1.
Further, the exams will be held under strict precautions. Education Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal said, “Both students’ and teachers’ safety, security, and future are supremely important to us.”
The states who still disagree with the proposal are given time (race against time phrase meaning) till May 25 to submit their detailed proposals to the education minister. Also, the demand that Class 12th students should be vaccinated before appearing for the exams is raised. Pfizer (whose vaccine of kids has been accepted by several countries) should be consulted or should give our own vaccine to kids after consulting with experts considering they are 17.5 years old and only months away from 18.
Everything will be for the good of students, without jeopardizing the health of the Nation. Till then stay safe and wait for the final decision.
