Why this petition matters
Schools and Colleges were shut when there were just 100 cases of Covid in the Country, but when we are seeing the 2nd wave in the country government is planning on conducting offline exams in the state. Exactly a year before, the Maharastra government postponed SSC examinations cause there were 100's of cases daily. It was suggested that going to schools and colleges was not safe, so the lectures were conducted ONLINE. But a year after when there's around 1000's of daily covid cases Maharastra Government had decided to conduct offline board exams from the 23rd of April, saying it's safe to conduct offline exams, is it?
Students are not demanding Exams to get cancel, they just want it to be Online! UK has also been badly affected by COVID-19, so they declare taking exams the usual way is Unfair but they changed their assessment to ensure there was no gap in the student's education, so they choose Internal assessment to pass students. In fact, in Tamil-nadu 10th and 11th standard examinations were canceled, and students were passed based on their internal assessment marks.
Authorities say taking online exams is not possible because every student doesn't have a smartphone or laptop but if applying the same logic, schools and colleges were shut all the year and students were deprived of basic online technology, so how are they expected to study all year round anyway? It means that authorities are assuming that students have the technology to study online but not for giving exams online.
We all know about the ongoing situation but are we going to pretend that there is no problem? are we going to assume that all these students who are protesting are faking it all? or are we going to take one step forward and try to find a solution to this? if you believe that we can do it online, then please fill up this petition and show support to students. #wecandoitonline
