Indore (Madhya Pradesh): Students of Class 10 and Class 12 attempting Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) board examinations of the academic session 2021-’22 are panicky and demand that the board pick the best of Term 1 and Term 2 to declare the final result. However, the CBSE is stern about the decision having already informed students about the pattern last year.

Some sources of the board shared that the board has informed all the schools to prepare students for the results, as the results will be declared, including both Term 1 and Term 2, and not picking out the best score.

The cumulative result of Term 1 and Term 2 is likely to bring down the score of students further.

Starting with #SubjectWiseBestOfEitherTerms, the students are now reaching out to the Prime Minister by trending #ModijiHelpCBSEstudents2022 on social media.

Some students put up their plea with humble requests, such as Tanishka, Harshita and Kevin. Some students seemed desperate to get some relief.

A student, Shivam Kaushik, attempted to convince the board by quoting how state boards have been easier on students by announcing leniency in paper corrections. ‘State boards announced that paper corrections should be liberal, due to pressure on students. Two Toughest Board Exams in a year: What about #CBSE?’ he said.

Shiva Kumar, another student, claimed that the teachers had not prepared them enough for the board examination.

Students demand choosing the best of score giving the following reasons:

There were two board exams in the year

Most of the year, classes were online and in hybrid mode

CBSE changed the format of board examination this year

Educationists & teachers’ lens shows...

Most of the students have failed to give their best, because they took the examination too lightly. Stating this, former Indore Sahodaya Complex of CBSE Schools chairperson UK Jha said, “This year, the attitude of most students attempting Class 10 and Class 12 CBSE board examinations was very casual.”

Invigilators quoted a lack of preparations to a non-serious attitude and one of them, Anita Sharma, said, “Most students were too casual and did not even read the questions properly, it seems.” She added that the students often just sat casually and did not seem serious judging by their body language either.

“This time, most students called up at the last minute seeking short-cuts. I think it’s a bad side-effect of online education,” Kanchan Tare, current chairperson of Indore Sahodaya, said.
