All India Students Association (AISA) asserts to have sent a letter to Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank, the Education Minister of the country.
All India Students Association writes a letter to the education minister. Additionally, the letter was also written to the education ministers of the different states. This letter asked the ministers to cancel the compartment exams.
Besides, the student union is also against conducting any exam amid the pandemic of COVID-19. Moreover, this letter is on behalf of many students who failed in their subjects with a very less margin. Additionally, this margin is from one mark to seven marks.
Besides, the letter states, “Students feel sad as a large number of candidates are provided with marks without having to sit in the exams. Students achieve good marks without having to perform.” Henceforth, such students should also be awarded either grace marks. The other option could be to promote the students on the basis of performance in the internal assessment, the letter stated.
The letter tends to claim that there are various students who have provisional admissions in colleges. However, they are at risk of suffering a loss of a good amount of money. Moreover, the letter also claims that students are taking risks in their life by giving exams during the pandemic. Further, through the letter, they brought the plight of students in Bihar, Assam, and Mumbai. Additionally, these regions are still facing a flood condition. Besides, they don’t have the required resources.
The other thing that is worrying is the mental health condition of the students. AISA also mentioned this in the letter to the ministers.
Besides, CBSE earlier claimed that not conducting compartment exams will lead to difficulty for the students. It also stated that while it is receiving messages for not holding the exams, CBSE could not go ahead with it.
CBSE also informed that exams will take place. However, the varsity says that it will provide the required precautions amid pandemic.
