Post CISCE’s hints, ICSE schools in Kolkata plan to defer pre-board exams!

Kolkata: Post CISCE’s hints, ICSE schools in Kolkata plan to defer pre-board exams. Earlier Mamata Banerjee cancelled pre-board exams for the State Board and announced that students would give boards directly. Also, with a round of rumours and speculations around CBSE 2021 exam dates, uncertainties seem to never end. To end the queries on exam dates, Union Education Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal tweeted to address them on December 3. He also urged the students,parents and stakeholders to post their queries or concerns with hashtag #EducationMinisterGoesLive on twitter.

CISCE’s hints!

CISCE hints at delaying the Boards exam to end of May or June. But some school heads pointed out that a formal decision was yet to be taken by council’s chief executive and secretary, Gerry Arathoon.He said, “the ICSE and ISC board exams are not likely to take place before the end of May or in June.” It had mixed reactions from parents, students and stakeholders.

A group of students were elated over getting enough time to prepare for national entrance tests and for studying abroad. Whilst others were grim about it, especially the science students as they have to finish the syllabus by February, when JEE (Main) is likely to be held. “I will prepare for national tests and then start studying for ISC”, said an ISC candidate.

Some teachers are sceptical about the disrupted 2021 calendar and that Class XI session would have to be curtailed. Whilst others seem to welcome it for it would give students enough time to revise and even get back to school to clear their doubts and not have a Boards without a black board.

Post CISCE’s hints, ICSE schools in Kolkata plan to defer pre-board exams. Though nothing has been said or done formally but schools in the city seem to be firm on their stand. Most of the schools are done with their pre-board by the third week of January but that seem unlikely this time.

St James’ School has postponed its pre-board exam and scheduled it after 15th January,2020.Terence Ireland, the principal of St James’ School said, ” There is a possibility of the Board exams being postponed and hence we have also decided to defer the pre-boards. We are yet to announce the dates.”

The principal of Calcutta Girls’ High School, Basanti Biswas said,” We are contemplating pushing the pre-board exams to February if the board exam is postponed.”

“It will give students more time. This is an unusual year because of online classes. Also, teachers will have more time to gauge and understand how much the children have followed. If the situation improves and the students are allowed to come to school, they will be able to perform the practicals before the exam,” said Biswas.

Father M.Thamasin Arulappan, the principal of St Xavier’s Collegiate School,“Students need time to prepare for the exams and the pre-boards are important exams for the students to prepare themselves for the finals. Teachers will have time to discuss with the students their weak areas.”

Modern High School is yet to decide on the dates but intend to give adequate preparation time between the pre-boards and the board exams. Usually there is a gap of four to six weeks between the two.

Waiting for a communication from the council, Ram Mohan Mission High School seem to delay their pre-board too.

Principal Sujoy Biswas said.” We plan to hold the pre-boards in the end of January or the beginning of February, instead of finishing off all the papers by the second week of January that we do in other years.”

Schools like Loreto House and Sri Sri Academy, who have their pre-boards scheduled for January, are also waiting for an official communication from the council.

Suvina Shunglu, the principal of Sri Sri Academy said,“We would prefer them to come to school if the situation permits. Students then can sit through a three-hour paper and be prepared for a board exam.”
