    Schools and colleges have not been able to conduct classes or hold assessment/ preparatory exams in the right manner. Besides the offline classes are no indicator of whether or how much the student has actually grasped the concept of the study material. Offline exams allows students to cheat and as a developing country not everyone can afford monitoring devices. If promotions to the next grade without proper assessment (or exams as called here) continue it will put a big question mark on the student's qualifications and capability in the future. Goverment has wasted a year busy with blame-games, rituals and elections instead of concentrating on the people and students. As the virus will continue to reappear in different avatars, there needs to be a much serious and broader discussion on a roadmap for a restructured framework and pathway for continuous knowledgeable enrichment of our children in these uncertain times.

    Best to promote all the students based on internal assessments , anyway they will have to prepare for their respective entrance exams to get into the various professional courses. This has been a difficult year for them so spare them and their parents the burden of board exams .
