For the previous one week, bulletins of a lot of exams — boards and entrance checks, have trickled in — both of their postponement or cancellation this yr.
So far, IIT-JEE (April) and NEET exams have been delay for an indefinite interval.
On Tuesday, the Maharashtra authorities known as off the SSC exams. Earlier, the postponement of the HSC board examinations was declared. NEET entrance, initially scheduled on April 18, was cancelled and a recent date is awaited. IIT-JEE (Mains), which was to be performed between April 27 and 30, is now postponed. CSIR-NET and UGC NET exam, scheduled between May 2 and 17, too, are indefinitely postponed.
This has left the scholar neighborhood in a limbo as many have complained about problem in focusing on preparations and incapability to determine on their future examine and profession selections.
Lack of clarity in regards to the examination timeline appears to be the largest concern amongst college students and tutors.
With Covid-19 instances rising on daily basis, it’s unlikely that these national-level examinations will be performed anytime quickly. The solely silver lining, some say, is the extra time college students now have to continue preparations.
“Though students could feel irritated now, on the bright side, they have additional time to study,” mentioned Durgesh Mangeshkar, director, IITian’s Prashikshan Kendra
Offering the same view, Lalit Kumar, founder and director, Prime Academy, mentioned, “Students must prepare a list of topics, based on their importance, and use this golden opportunity to better prepare.” “Students must remain focused on studies despite the rescheduled exam dates,” added Kumar.
Sumita Ravi, dad or mum of a category XII scholar within the metropolis, mentioned examinations should not be performed earlier than the scenario improves. “Students must at least be told they won’t have to take an exam before date…” she mentioned.
Pranav Kumar Jha, an NET aspirant, mentioned the postponement will give him extra time to focus on preparations. He is a postgraduate in chemistry from Nagpur.
“Every exam requires a designated method of preparation. If all agencies and institutions conducting examinations, be it the boards or entrances, can jointly come up with comprehensive details offering a timeline of the examinations, it will help students accordingly plan their studies in the coming weeks,” mentioned Mangeshkar.
Though there isn’t any resolution but on the upcoming JEE exams scheduled in May, tutors counsel that the remaining exams be mixed.
