Postponing 12th exams has a ripple effect on the future of students

New Delhi: 10 board exams and postponed class 12 exams following a surge in coronavirus cases. Anuj Jindal, Edu-Tech Expert, CEO, AJC EdTech Platform concerned about the future of Students said that the intention behind cancelling and postponing exams is noble, as nothing is more important than the lives of our countrymen. However, postponing the exams has a ripple effect on the future of students, which is often ignored by the authorities. Lack of sync between schools and colleges would leave many students out of higher education in the next 1 year.

We are already witnessing the same problem in Government examinations which are not considering a delay in college exams and demanding that all students be graduates before a certain date (which is impossible due to covid). The solution lies in adapting fast to the changing conditions by using digital mediums to conduct examinations in a fair manner. If government examinations like RBI & SEBI can be conducted online, board examinations can also be conducted online at home using similar technologies.
