The long wait for the CBSE class 10 and 12 Term 1 results continues. So far, there has been no official update regarding when the results will officially be declared. However, amidst all these, students have a started new Twitter campaign demanding internal assessment. As per reports, the upcoming term 2 exams will be conducted in offline mode. However, students seem to be unhappy about this and are campaigning on Twitter for cancelling the upcoming board exams.
To support the cause, Advocate Anubha Shrivastava Sahai has taken a strong stand. As seen from the tweets, a Twitter campaign will be starting from 10 PM onwards today, February 14, 2022. She has also urged everyone to not retweet since it does not count.
Students have demanded that when the classes are conducted in the online mode for the entire, then the exams should also be held in the same mode. However, the Board is reported to hold the CBSE term 2 2022 exams in offline mode. While talking about the pending Term 1 results, Advocate Sahai has mentioned that admissions for more than 54 Central Universities will be held via CUCET 2022. Hence, because of this, the results should be announced immediately so that the students can also start their preparation for the entrance examination.
Why Internal Assessment?
As a result of online classes that started after the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, students have claimed that they are not yet familiar with how one writes the examination. The tweet attached below highlights the concern even better. According to this student, they were called for practical classes only for two days due to which they were unable to perform well in the examination.
Reportedly, a petition has been filed in the Supreme Court of India whereby students seek an alternate mode of conducting the upcoming board exams. Sources say that students hailing from nearly 06 states have approached the apex court. The reason why this petition has been filed is not explicitly clear but according to sources, it’s due to the prevailing COVID-19 situation and the difficulties faced by the students.
What has been understood from the tweets is that the students are not prepared to appear for offline exams due to which they now want an alternative mode of assessment. In that case, an internal assessment would suffice the need of the hour because this will not require them to take the exam physically. As of now, it is yet to be seen what the outcome of this Twitter campaign turns out.
