According to the Ministry of Education, it is important to conduct examinations to ensure the progress and better future of the students. All kinds of discussions are taking place between students, parents and teachers on the conduct of examinations this year. So far, school and colleges across the country have not fully opened due to the Coronavirus pandemic.
The Education Minister has said, "It is a big challenge for students who are constantly away from schools and colleges to study online. But students should always be prepared to turn this challenge into an opportunity."
Many parents across the country want the date of the Board examinations to be postponed by a few months at least. A body of school parents has even sent a proposal to the Ministry of Education to extend the date of Board examinations. According to the proposal, parents want the examinations to be conducted in May or thereafter.
