Bengaluru: Examination as usual for 1st to 9th grade this academic year

Daijiworld Media Network – Bengaluru (MS)

Bengaluru, Jan 23: The education department is mulling over holding examinations for first to ninth grade this year, according to government sources. They were not held for the past two years due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Parents also feel that the examinations are necessary to understand the learning ability of children, though the classes were not held this year as usual.

In the past two years, students have attended classes online and were promoted to the next grade without any examination. Due to this their learning ability has dropped, believe the parents. Parents also feel that their enthusiasm is reduced because of sitting at home. So they feel that it is good to hold examinations in view of the future of their children.

According to the advice given by education experts, the examinations for first to ninth grade should be held before the SSLC examinations. They have urged the government to allow schools to hold physical classes for students.

Dr V P Niranjanaradhya, education expert says, “There is no meaning in closing schools in the name of pandemic. Any kind of justification is detrimental to the interest and future of the children. Closing of schools should be the last option regardless of the number of new waves of pandemic. Also schools must be opened on priority. Closing of schools while all other establishments are open is just fearsome and there is no scientific reason behind it.”

    Truely agree. I am a working mother and I don't see any closure of offices. So how is possible to control the spread. Schools are being closed just to avoid the blame in case of any positivity. Schools should operate as usual and leave the decision of sending the kids to school to their respective parents and government should not take decision on behalf of the parents. Kids have lost the decipline of learning, no values towards being honest in online exam. They take it very lightly. Young toddlers miss the early learning, socialising and interacting skills which is base for future...... please reopen the school s ASAP. THANK YOU

    Really a good initiative. This pandemic generation needs to be pulled out of "learning poverty" by all means and this physical exam may be the much needed step to normalise the situation.
