COIMBATORE: With schooling minister K A Sengottaiyan clarifying that Class X board assessments can be held come what may, academics have appealed that students will have to be allowed to jot down assessments in their own schools.

If students are allocated examination centres in other schools, transportation could prove to be a problem in addition to social distancing, they said. Instead, all schools will have to be made examination centres and scholars will have to be allowed to jot down assessments in their own schools, they said.

S Arunan, president of Tamil Nadu Government Employees Teachers Association, said if students from five or six schools are made to jot down assessments in the similar centre, maintaining non-public distancing can be tough and also transportation may well be inconvenient. “The state will have to increase the number of examination centres, i.e., it will have to allow students to jot down the board assessments in their own schools,” he said.

He said if the students of 3 or extra schools are clubbed and are assigned at the identical examination centre, some students must travel 10km-12km to achieve the centres.

“Folks might face problems to deliver their youngsters all the method and buses may additionally not be available in right kind time. So the state will have to announce students’ personal schools as their examination centres. In this fashion, there could be 10 or fewer students in one examination hall and there can be social distancing. Teachers from other schools could be deployed as invigilators, to verify equity,” he said.

This may well be tough on the subject of getting query papers to all the examination centres and amassing solution scripts from they all, but given the pandemic state of affairs, that is the one method to verify non-public safety, and the state will have to imagine it, he said.

The state will have to be sure there may be right kind public delivery for college students and academics in order that they succeed in examination centres in time. “Scholars will have to be given hand sanitisers, mask, and other protecting measures at the examination centres,” Arulanandam said.
