Life In Distress For More Than 2 Million CBSE Students With Re-examination
The students and their parents seem to have shaken off from the blow and lost faith in the board, labelling it as ‘incompetent’ and lambasted it for playing with the future of the students
After the announcement yesterday (28th March) that the class 10 mathematics and class 12th economics board exam will be conducted again, CBSE faced heavy criticism from students and parents alike, while a lot of people blaming the board for risking the career of the students.
The students and their parents seem to have shaken off from the blow and lost faith in the board, labelling it as ‘incompetent’ and lambasted it for playing with the future of the students. The new dates for re-examination will be soon announced by CBSE on its official website cbse.nic.in.
The move will affect 2.2 million students’ altogether, with more than 500,000 students in Class 12 economics and about 1.7 million in Class 10 maths forced to reappear for the exams.
A parent of class 10th student was quoted saying, “We all are very affected with the news. Why could the CBSE not keep the question paper safe? It speaks a lot about its incompetency.”
The parent added, “My daughter worked so hard for her exam and was very excited after the paper. But she is completely dejected now and asked me what’s her fault in all this.”
The students feel hard done by it, and feel it is an injustice to their hard work. The decision has certainly made life hard for students who are now living under a lot of stress with uncertainity looming over how they will go about the fresh exam.
Calls have made to the government to revoke the decision and not making students’ life miserable. Ironically, Prime Minister Narendra Modi had asked students not to panic in exams in his recent episode of ‘Mann Ki Baat’.
This year, 16,38,428 students had registered for Class X and 11,86,306 for the Class XII board examinations.
