Nagpur: CBSE board exam is going to start on the date of 26 April, And now in such a situation, schools are advising all the students that they must practice writing as much as possible. Schools have been completely closed between online-offline mode since the Covid pandemic hit. And in such a situation, not all students have got the same level of writing practice which was common till the year 2019.
The Director of The Achievers School, Sapna Katiyar, has said that All school students should thoroughly solve the practice papers with a timer before taking the exam. Students can write the answer in key points to complete the paper on time.
Rupali Dey, Principal, Modern School (Koradi), feels that in the last almost two years many students have lost the habit of writing due to various reasons. CBSE is more focused on conceptual understanding rather than memorization. Because of this, the students have to understand the main concept, Write down the answer, cover the most important steps and highlight the most important words.
Lucky Sadrani, Principal of Podar International School (Katol Road) advised all the school children to remain calm and not panic at all. She has said that he is sure that most of the schools would have taken pre-board, in which their students would have been given the practice to complete the paper in the stipulated time, Which has given them enough practice.
Spelling skills are impaired by typing out short messages
Lucky Sadrani has said that in the same year board examinations have been conducted for only two hours. Usually, they get around three hours for a paper of 80 marks whereas now for a paper of 40 marks only two hours are available. Because of this, solve the easiest questions first. Effective time management will play a very important role. Allocate a certain amount of time for five, three, and even two-mark questions.
According to Aruna Rao, principal of Central India Public School (Kamptee), the students’ interest in writing has completely vanished. The spelling skills are completely impaired by typing out very short messages. She has advised all the students that they must write at least three pages daily to develop the muscular stamina of hands and fingers. Also, set a timer for self-assessment so that there is no problem in completing the paper.
She has also said that there is another advantage for all the students is that physical classes are going on very regularly for the last few months. Rao said that this gave him ample opportunity to write and they also feel that the students will be able to clear the exam on time as the pressure of the board exam can motivate them to write very fast.
