Nagpur: The state government has released the subject wise timetable for HSC and SSC board examinations on Tuesday. Earlier this month, the education department announced the duration of the exam window. The examinations to be held in the month of March and April will be in offline mode.
Both SSC and HSC will start the exam session with the paper of ‘First Language’ on the dates of 15th and 4th March respectively.
While CBSE has not yet released the exam timetable, Which they officially refer to as the date sheet, it is also expected that the dates will be more or less in the same period.
Both CBSE and state boards had canceled their written board exams last year. Because the second wave of covid had started in the summer months itself. And the marks were allotted to the students on the basis of internal marks and other parameters, which were different for both the boards.
Many problems reported with this format
Some issues were also reported with the same format as some schools had conducted the assessment in online mode only. To counter such issues, CBSE had cleverly carried forward this session by dividing its board exams into 2 parts. And the first was conducted recently in the month of November-December while the dates for the second phase (known as Term-II) are yet to be announced. Because of this even if the CBSE Term-2 exam has been canceled due to some reason, it has only Term-1 offline board exam scores to be used as the benchmark.
The state board, which caters to a very diverse population located in the most remote part of the state and urban, however, has been able to do nothing.
