The Maharashtra government took the decision to hold the Maharashtra Board exam 2021 offline in the month of April. However, this decision was not well-received by students and parents alike. The majority of the students are upset about holding Maharashtra HSC and SSC exam 2021 offline. The sudden spike in COVID-19 cases in the state is a significant area of concern. Therefore, the decision has not gone down too well with the students and their wards.
As per the reports, a city-based teacher conducted a survey in which the teacher concluded that an overwhelming number of 79% of the students were not happy with the decision to conduct the exam offline. A Hindi medium civic school teacher, Dineshkumar Gupta, took the help of Google forms and reached out to around 1.5 lakh students. The step was taken to find the opinion of the students on the upcoming State Board exam 2021.
Kumar stated, “We have been reaching out to the education department to demand they bring some changes in the format of the examinations, considering that learning has been impacted due to the pandemic.” Out of the 79% of students, 84% believed that the state board should reduce the syllabus. In contrast, 70% were not satisfied with online lectures. And around 33% of students were willing to go for a drop in order to prepare better for the exams.
