Allow Calculators in CBSE exams

This petition had 18 supporters

The department of education and CBSE have been working on overhauling the education system to reduce the burden and stress on children since a long time.  However for some reason calculators are banned in exam halls though they are used in schools regularly.   Thus  Children go through lot of stress while calculating (without using calculators) and end up making mistakes  unintentionally.  This leads to many brilliant students losing marks due to miscalculations.  

Calculator is just a tool to aid in calculation and everybody uses it day in and day out in their daily life.  Why are we then expecting the kids to not use calculators and instead rely on their calculation skills only for the exams? 

Allowing calculators in the exams will reduce the stress to a great extent.  The children will then be able to focus more on the steps to solve a problem instead of wasting time in calculating manually.
