Rajasthan Board of Secondary Education, RBSE announced that it will conduct the remaining 10th and 12th board exams in June 2020. CM Ashok Gehlot announced this last week. Now, students and teachers are concerned about the examinations conducted in the same center that was previously assigned. Since many had returned to their home district due to the pandemic in the state, they requested that the exam centre be relocated to their home district.
Board declared that the exams will be conducted in June and the government has started to find a centres to conduct exams maintaining social distancing at the same time.
Many student have studied in various coaching institutions far from their hometowns and applied for the center.
Kota is famous for the tutoring of IIT and medical entrance exams. Many students choose to study there to prepare for their entrance and taking the entrance exam at the same time.
After announcing that the exam will take place again, many students decide to return to their centers, which will expose them to higher health risks. This is why students and teachers have asked the government to move test centers to home districts like CBSE and many other boards have already done so.
According to the TOI reports, a senior RBSE official spoke on the centre issue. He said that CBSE has 30 lakh students across the country whereas Rajasthan had 20 lakh students alone in the state which will make it difficult for them to shuffle centres now and give everyone their home districts.
The Rajasthan Primary and Secondary Education Teacher’s Association Vice President said that it was better to hold exams in home districts as the students will find it difficult to return back to their centres.
