Coronavirus pandemic has forced people to stay indoors as much as they can and shut the schools, colleges along with yearly examinations. Following this, the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has made several changes for the future of students.
CBSE has announced that there will be two board exams for the academic session 2021-22- Term I and Term II. The education board will conduct the Class 10 and 12 exams in two parts.
Double examination- CBSE new assessment system
As per CBSE’s announcement, the first term questions will be objective and the second term will be subjective.
Exams will be held on 50 percent of syllabus delivered to students in the said term and no overlapping of the syllabus will take place.
Both exams will carry equal weightage and the final result will be based on the performance in these exams.
The first term exams for session 2021-22 will be held in November- December 2021 and the time given to solve the question paper will be 90 minutes. Second term exams in March-April 2022 and 120 minutes will be granted to attempt the question paper.
Soon after CBSE made its announcement, thousands of students started responding with memes on social media. Where some students are in distress due to double exams some are entirely unbothered.
Gaurav Anand, a class 2 student from KV NER, Bareilly, has expressed objection and said, “Due to the foolishness of our seniors regarding the cancellation of CBSE Board exams, now we have to pay for that by giving exams two times in a single year..one term will be a penalty and the other is for us.”
He added, “If the first term exams are conducted on a school level, I will be ok, otherwise it will not be fair for us as it will double our burden by giving two exams which are conducted by CBSE.”
Worrying about the entrance exams, which class 12th students have to take few days after board exams, a Class XII student said, “It’s going to be a tough situation now. As far as I understand the change in the CBSE exam pattern, 50% syllabus will be asked in Term I and the remaining will be asked in Term II."
"But soon after the examinations are over, we’ll have to go through the entire syllabus in a short period to appear in entrance examinations like JEE Main and NEET. The benefit of covering the full CBSE syllabus in board examinations was that the students could prepare well for the entrance examinations too.”
Meanwhile, Class 10 students are also feeling overburdened as they too have to prepare twice for board exams.
Piyush Ladwal, a Class 10 student of Air Force School, Bareilly said, “For the whole year, we will be busy bees all the time haunted with the fear of board examinations and will not be able to participate in any other activity.”
Students have flooded Twitter and other social media platforms with memes on the CBSE’s decision of conducting two exams for one batch. Here are some hilarious memes shared on the platform.
