Apart from this, the meeting discusses the rising concerns over the next year exams. With the competitive examination cycle hardly concluded for 2020, the worry for the next year’s competitive exams has begun to create speculations.
Moreover, due to schools shut from the commencement of the academic session, many students have been left to study completely by themselves.
Over Lakh of students have been worst affected who do not have access to online educational tools. Under these situations, the notification of a possibility of reconsidering the syllabus of various competitive exams provides relief to many students.
