Restore number of General Seats in NTSE
To, The HRD Minister,Govt. Of IndiaNew Delhi. Dear Sir,NTSE is one of the most presitigious exams for students of class X and lakhs of students across India appear every year hoping for an early recongnition of their talents. This year too kids appeared in the stage I examination and as NTSE Stage1 results and Cutoffs are being announced by each State Education Department of the country kids are in for a rude shock.Seat Allocation Matrix applicable for the current year was revised and declared in 2017-18. This allocation will be valid till 2019-20 and subsequently will be revised again for next 3 years. But all of a sudden in 2019 27% OBC quota has been applied which reduced the seats available for meritorious General students from 77.5% to 50.5% across all states. This sudden impact has DEMOTIVATED a huge number of Talented students who have put day and night in this crucial year of board exam.This feeling of being sidelined for no fault of theirs is not good to nurture talent especially at a young age of 15 yrs. We urge you to relook at the reduction of seats for general students. We are all for giving opportunities to deprived classes but do not take away opportunities from deserving kids. Instead increase the total seats so that there is no impact on General students.It still is not too late and if you can act fast justice will be served to this talented lot. Please have a revised list published and allow more general students to appear for Stage2 of NTSE to be held on May 12th 2019. Hopeful of your fast intervention. Thanks,
Petition to Alternative Method to conduct exam
Codetantra is not a sufficient platform to give exam and it's requirements is too much for a student and process of giving exam is bit tough. No to code tantra means selective alternative solution or the previous method of exam. Codetantra have many issues 1) For transfer of data via video and audio for continuous 3 hrs, a lot of data will be required and many students doesn't have that much of data for a day. 2) This sites prohibits use of earphone, many students use old laptop and might have problem in system audio device as it is very common. 3) Codetantra claims to be very user friendly but the instructions provided are very complex and one might do something by mistake which costs his/her exam 4) Laptop + Phone method will be utilized by most of and this will cost much more data than usual which might not be feasible by all. 5) There is no instructions of what to do when internet connection is lost. 6) Thapar students were utilizing same platform and faced a lot of problems causing in the cancellation of their exams. (Server crashed) 7) We have 3 hrs to give test as well as scan and upload. 8) Instructor was himself confused while demonstrating. 9) There are lots of way a student can get blocked in this platform which will hamper concentration of an individual also it will waste time. 10) For scan & upload they require lots of thing like Black gel pen, High resolution camera mobile phones which is not feasible for many. 11) Webinar was more like a YouTube video instead of an interactive session. 12) Demonstration was very confusing. 13) There are many specific requirement in scan & upload which can easily be missed by a student. 14) There is no option for cropping answer sheet and one will require to take picture of all pages if one pic get blurred 15) There is no option if an individual’s daily data get over. 16) The platform is really stressful. 17) Taking exams need lot of concentration and following these guidelines will disturb one’s concentration many time. 18) Avoiding a phone call or text is near to impossible for all those 3 hr and if that happens we will get blocked 19) It was claimed that Codetantra will be very user friendly and we will have a smooth exam. But with our experience it’s not user friendly at all, very difficult to understand and there is no assurance of a smooth examination. 20) Using this platform will affect everyone’s grade and being 4th year students we might also lose some crucial Placement opportunity just because of this platform. So kindly support us
Petition to Mumbai University, Vinod Tawde, suhas pendekar, Dr Ukarande S K
Preparation Leave time between exams should not be reduced for MU Engineering Exams
Mumbai University shouldn't change the current exam schedule as students don't get enough time to study. Half the year round Students are overloaded with assignments and experiments and do not get time to study. Enough time is not available to revise if only a gap of 1 day is provided between exams. Already there's enough pressure for students having KT and if less time is provided then it'll be worse for everyone... We kindly request that MU doesn't pass this petition of shortening preparation time in the upcoming examinations

Postpone MBBS exams for MUHS first year students
Students are growing anxious over the turmoil by the impending examinations for the first year medical students, with much of the syllabus yet to be covered in classroom teaching and almost all of the practicals to be taught. Students are also wary of their safety in the ongoing second wave of Covid-19 which is rampant in Maharashtra. We want colleges to take appropriate safety measures and complete the pending syllabus before taking the decision of conducting exams. We request MUHS to follow NMC guidelines and conduct exams in February.

We hope this request can be accommodated As state government already scraped Board examinations keeping safety of students as a priority, we UNIVERSITY STUDENTS also want the same concern to be shown for our Semester Examinations.

Please Don't Ban NEET 2021 !!
To Honourable Chief-minister, I hope this letter finds you well .It is our humble request for the Neet examination to be continued this year as it always has been.We demand that any plans for the cancellation of NEET should be scrubbed as they are not in the best interest of our students. Tamil Nadu students have been working diligently this past year towards this exam and the repeaters have been pushing for alot longer than that, with some of them going on for their fourth or fifth year.The cancellation of NEET would be an affront to their efforts.Since the introduction of the NEET examination it has been a platform for students to achieve their dreams in medicine.We plead for this platform to not be taken away from those who could be the future of medicine. Moreover if these exams are cancelled we would not be able to see our TN students in top medical colleges such as AIIMS and JIPMER We ask that the NEET examination of 2021 be conducted as previously arranged with any plans of cancellation to be put on hold, atleast for the year of 2021. KINDLY SHARE. THIS MAXIMUM
Petition to Andhra Pradesh Public Service Commission(APPSC)
"Save the Merit"- Discrepancies in Andhra Pradesh Group1 Mains Result
The Andhra Pradesh Public Service Commission(APPSC) released a notification in 2018 for recruitment to Group1 services. The Mains exam for this notification was held in December 2020. And, the results for the Mains exam were given on 28th April, 2021. Out of the 7000 students who appeared for the exam, around 340 students cleared it and got selected to the Personality Test ( interview round). But this result was unexpected and a rude shock as many deserving and meritorious candidates couldn't clear it. This is not a grievance of an individual aspirant. It is an issue of a collective nature. Candidates selected through this exam will hold key positions in the government. We, thus request your urgent attention to this issue of far-reaching importance to public administration and social service delivery in Andhra Pradesh. The questions we raise pertain to the nature of the examination procedures- is it transparent, fair, free of errors or prejudice? 1.Digital evaluation of the answer sheets is the most controversial decision of APPSC. This mode was not a part of the original notification. There was no pilot study. Did the logistics of scanning nearly 50,000+ scripts and lakhs of pages account for human errors? Even a few pages wrongly assigned can kill a student’s chances of making it to the next round. 2.Shockingly, a third party was engaged with the responsibility of paper evaluation. The main duty is being outsourced without any legitimate reasons. Can the EC outsource conduct of elections? 3.The commission needs to disclose in what ways scaling between the English medium papers and Telugu medium papers was done. 4.The names of selected candidates have not been disclosed. This is a violation of general practice undertaken by the UPSC We demand the following measures to be taken up by the Commission 1.Physical re-evaluation of Mains answer-sheets. Manual evaluation of a minimum of 100 answer sheets can be done first to confirm their inconsistency with marks gained through digital evaluation.2. Disclose names of selected candidates and marks of all candidates. This also allows them to understand their shortcomings for their next attempt.3. Release a white paper on the SOP of the technicalities of digital evaluation.4. Release marks and scripts of all unselected candidates.5. Institute a functioning online grievance redressal system for aspirants to lodge their complaints on this process. Given the opacity of the current evaluation process, it gives rise to claims of nepotism and corruption. This result involves the futures of thousands of aspirants working hard for years trying to succeed in this exam. APPSC, given its Constitutional responsibility, needs to make disclosure, to ensure that the system is foolproof and above any reproach. Aspirants demand that justice not just be done, but it should be seen to be done.

Cancellation of Karnataka SSLC board exams
Due to Covid-19 pandemic, classes have not gone properly and even syllabus also has not yet completed in many schools. Online classes have not been effective. Moreover, corona cases are increasing rapidly and highly. Students are really very much worried. But our government is not ready to cancel 10th board exams. Students' life is much more important than exams. CBSE and many other states have already cancelled 10th board exams. By the cancellation of the exams, students get relieved. So I request you to sign this petition and support the students
