Telangana State Board of Intermediate Education (TSBIE) Decision to Conduct Practical after Theory Exams:
Telangana State Board of Secondary Intermediate Education has decided that got the State Board students off guard.
The practical examination for these students is now scheduled to commence after completing their State Board theory examination, opposed to the conforming chronology.
After being delayed for two months, the theory exams are set to start from May 1 and conclude on May 20.
The blow on Education Sector:
The education sector, in the wake of the covid-19 pandemic, hit hard. Proper systematic and structured examinations that have been a norm have seemed to go out of existence.
Since Last year, the education industry has been suffering enormously as the institutions have failed to uphold the regular curriculum and have been unable to conduct examinations.
Work From Home Assignments:
The Board head announced on March 20th that subjects such as Human Values, Ethics, and Environmental Education Examination didn’t even make it to the theory exams as they are now, no more being conducted physically in person.
The board has cleared that work from the home assignment is enough for these subjects, and the students need not give their exams.
They have been asked to drop the assignment in pdf format either online or physically between 1st and 20th April.
The practical and viva, which was supposed to be held from 7th April to 20th April, are now scheduled from 27 May to 9 June 2021.
Controls and Precautions:
The state board of Telangana has taken this decision in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic round 2.
The virus has started taking its form and is about to have a wide nationwide outbreak if not kept in control. The students have been facing a major crisis as the uncertainty regarding studies and exams has caused unrest.
Exams being declared, ultimately to get canceled and delayed, has become the trend now. The online classes haven’t provided the level of satisfaction that the offline classes do, as confirmed by the students.
However, the schools have shown humanity by lowering the fees and extending a hand for help whenever needed.
