With the onset of the COVID-19 this year, everything has been a mess. There hasn’t been proper school. Many schools couldn’t conduct class due to the lack of tech in many households. Everything has been haphazard. 

For many, virtual classes didn’t start until the month of June, rendering the months of March, April, May,useless. Many students are filled with anxiety just wondering when their finals for boards will take place.

Assignments, and classes have been a mess. Students are burdened with work, tests, and virtual class every day. As one student on Instagram under Pramod Sawant’s post wrote : 

“ I am a class 10th
student
studying in a school
in South Goa. I
won't disclose the name of my school and
myself..... I actually wanted to
say
something…The schools are giving a lot of
work to
the children... Before corona there
used to be a order of
completing the
portion
properly…..Now teachers are
giving a lot of work at one time..... So much
that even if I write for a whole day I'm not
able to finish....All the teachers think that
their subject is the only subject we have to
complete…There are
classes, tests,
homework, assignment... It's just becoming
a burden.....I request the CM to tell schools
to
go
in a proper order and give students
proper instructions....There
is one more
problem that is many of us had missed a lot
classes in the beginning because of rains
and unavailability of Wi-Fi and so I request
all the schools to start the portion from the
beginning when the school
reopens, As
nothing is understood in online classes....
And please don't burden students with a lot
of work or else there may be a suicide case
in Goa as well” 

and since we already in the month of October, it is irresponsible to have first term examinations for the sake of having them so late. Students should be focusing on their finals and preparing for boards now. 
So it is my humble request that schools, ICSE, or any board cancel first term exams.
