CBSE students allotted examination center 26 km away, board officials assure change
The class sixty students of Billabong High School in Malad were shocked to learn that the examination center allotted to them for the upcoming board examinations was about 26 km away from their school and residence. All residents of Malad, these students were deputed at KMS School in Parel to appear for their board exams.
The minor papers for CBSE class 10 and 12 students started from November 16, while the major papers are scheduled to start from November 30 this year. Concerned about the time taken by the students to travel to and from the examination centre, the parents approached the regional office of the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) in Pune, where the authorities have now assured them of a change in the examination centre. .
“As it is not difficult enough to prepare for the exam, our children were expected to travel 50 kms every day (commuting) for the exams. I was considering booking my daughter and myself in a hotel room in Parel near the exam centre,” said the mother of one of the students.
Starting this academic year, CBSE decided to conduct the board exams in two rounds- the first round of which is currently underway. Objective type question papers of 90 minutes will be answered on OMR sheet.
“From November 30 the students will go to the allotted examination center for their paper and we refuse to understand why our school principal did not object to such a serious error when he was first informed about it. The students received their hall tickets earlier this week and despite several queries (by parents), they got little help from the school.
Repeated attempts to reach out to the school authorities did not elicit any response.
An official from the CBSE regional office in Pune told HT that complaints have been received from parents of the school and new hall tickets will be issued early next week. “We have already allotted these students to another school only at a distance of 4 km,” said M Dharmadhikari, CBSE regional director for Pune (Mumbai schools come under his jurisdiction).
