Mangalore: Preparations have been made for the Critical Secondary School Leaving Certificate (SSLC) examination, citing a shortage of students’ time, with teachers and parents appealing to the government to allow schools to conduct revision classes on campus. Parents of those students, in particular, want to reopen schools in government schools for at least a fortnight, and the covid-induced lockdown points to a disadvantage situation that has fallen on people from a disadvantaged background.

Pointing to the disparity in education conditions before and after the onset of the epidemic, Eva M, a student of SSLC in Mangalore, pointed out that she attended classes on campus only classes 804 days earlier than class0 days. This has been the case since the Kovid outbreak. “A fortnight at school will help us skip our lessons. Mode of Education The online mode is not very effective. How can one expect to understand the concepts of mathematics when it is taught virtually, ”Eva asked. The Karnataka Secondary Education Examination Board has fixed the SSLC examination from July 19 to 22.

Echoing the concerns of students and teachers, Public Education Department (DPI) officials admitted to the inadequacy of online classes. “We opened schools in January, but they had to close in April, when the second wave of Kovid-19 was at its peak. I can understand the concerns of the students. Saying this, we cannot ignore the danger of a third recurrence of the epidemic, ”said Lokesh C. Malleswamy, deputy director of public instruction, said many teachers were trying to reach out to their students in person, and help them improve their lessons. “Of course, if we can have revision classes on campus for two weeks, the pressure to face the exam will be much less. But this is a catch-2 situation, as we cannot ignore the third wave, which is being predicted, “Malleswamy said. Within limits.

However, Dakshina Kannada DPI has prepared banks for all subjects – questions coming in multiple choice format to help students prepare for the next exam. Banks are prepared in both Kannada and English.
