Asra Jabeen started this petition to Audimulapu Suresh (Education Minister AP) and

“I request to cancel all the examinations  which are ongoing and which are going to be held(Board Exams) in this month as there's massive spike in covid positive cases and death rates here in Andhra Pradesh". Its very difficult for both students and teacher's during these tough times to attend the examinations. If students attend the exams there's high chances of them getting positive and be the potent carriers and this further will lead to more surge in the covid cases.

"Andra Pradesh is the only state in India that is still conducting exams in May. This involves more than a million students across 1400 exam centres. Every other state has either cancelled or postponed its exams for a later date. Why can't we do the same and use our resources fully to fight the pandemic?"

However, the state has already seen several instances of insufficient medical facilities and incompetence in adherence to the Covid protocols. The Andhra Pradesh Government had earlier conducted practical exams in small slots with around 60 students in each place. Even then, the Government failed to effectively incorporate social distancing measures which resulted in several students getting infected with the virus.

 

I urge the AP Education Minister to look into this matter.

Please do support this petition�

Surely we value the importance of education, but more than anything else people's lives and health matters.
