Bhopal, May 28 (HS): Former Chief Minister Digvijay Singh has written to Union Human Resource Development Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal ‘Nishank’ and requested him to make CBSE examinations at the nearest school from residence or online instead of the respective schools of the students. Singh has said that the examination schedule has been announced by CBSE.
There are mostly residential or day-boarding schools across the country. Schools whose students are in different parts of the country and have gone back to their homes during lockdown they will have to come back again for examinations, in a situation where they will be at risk of corona infection. At the same time, they will have to face many problems.
Singh has requested that the government can either conduct the exam online or decide general promotion like other international boards.
He has said that parents, students and especially students of residential schools and their acquaintances are worried and tense due to the release of the examination program. They feel that in the event of traveling to take the exam, they can fall prey to Corona.
Digvijay Singh has said in his letter that the cases of Covid-19 are increasing continuously in the country. Experts say that the corona virus will remain at its peak in July and at the same time CBSE has announced the examination schedule. There are hundreds of residential and day-boarding schools in Madhya Pradesh itself. Students studying in schools had returned to their homes in March due to lockdown and postponement of the examination.
Singh has requested the HRD Minister that under these circumstances, children should take the trouble of taking the examination by making an examination center near their home. Due to this, they will not have to travel, there will be less risk of corona and they will have to face less than travel and financial troubles.
