Central Board of Secondary Education released the 2019 Datesheet for class 10th and 12th Board Examination on the 23rd of December. A day after, the students have started raising objections regarding the lack of appropriate gaps between the examinations. Many students object that two days gap between Biology and Mathematics is too difficult to handle for the PCMB students since they have both Biology and Mathematics as their main subjects.
Out of the 240 subjects, this year the students have opted for 30,000 combinations of subjects in both the classes.
Many parents and students have expressed objections over social media regarding the lack of gaps between the examinations and appealed to change it.
“What is this there is only two-day gap for physics and two days for biology but you have given 14 days gap for physical education really not satisfied with this date sheet I think we need some changes in this,” writes another student.
Many raised an objection regarding the 10th Examination, that the class 10 exam was beginning with Mathematics which is a tough subject. This lead to create panic from the first day itself.
“Past many years Class X used to begin with English exams. Anxiety of children used to be reduced bcoz of it & now mathematics as first paper will create panic for 1st day itself,” tweeted a parent.
Last year, CBSE had to reschedule the Physics exam as it was coinciding with the JEE main dates. Keeping that in mind this year, the exams have begun from February to avoid with competitive examinations.
