Sangrur, September 12
At a time when the specter of the third wave of Covid looms, the Education Department’s determination to conduct offline exams for varsity college students has left parents worried. Many of them are unwilling to ship their kids to colleges and have already conveyed it to the authorities.
“As per stories, the third wave is imminent and we don’t possess required amenities and infrastructure to cope with it. But college authorities are compelling us to ship our kids for offline exams. I cannot ship my son at any price,” stated the daddy of an area scholar.
As per directions, exams for Classes VI to XII will begin from September 13. The timing for Classes VI, VII, IX and XI college students can be from midday to 2 pm, and that for Classes VIII and X can be from 9 to 10 am (11 am for some papers). Besides, the exams for Class XII college students can be performed from 9 to 11 am. Exams for Class III college students can be held from 9 to 10 am, Class IV from midday to 1 pm and for Class V from 10.30 to 11.30 am. — TNS
