Gujarat HC dismisses PIL seeking cancellation of physical exam
As many as 2,916 school buildings have been designated for the examinations that will start from July 15, government pleader ManishaLav Kumar told the court.
The Gujarat High Court on Tuesday dismissed a Public Interest Litigation application against the country's government's decision to hold tests for Class 10 and 12 repeat students and independent students for coronavirus. “We are here to lower the standard of education, but we want the standards to improve.
So repeaters and independent students, let them appear in the exams, let them study and let them pass the exams, ”said Chief Justice VikramNath. If the exams are held soon, it will be better for students as they will be able to be admitted to colleges before the seats are taken, said the bench of the Chief Justice Nath and Justice BirenVaishnav. The government has told the court it has made serious plans to hold the exams.
About 2,916 school buildings have been selected for the exams, which begin on July 15, state attorney ManisaLav Kumar told the court. "Very few students will appear in all subjects, and fortunately we are in a very good position in terms of epidemics where the pass rate is very low (at present)," he said. Applicant Naresh Shah, head of the school student body, argued that the decision of the Gujarat State Secondary and Higher Secondary Education Board (GSHSEB) to do repetitive tests (those who were to write the exams for the second time) put them at risk of getting coronavirus.
For ordinary Class 10 and 12 students, the Board has decided to exclude more people by considering the COVID-19 epidemic, and similar approval should be given to these students, the application requires. Instead of in-person tests, objectives or tests performed online can be held, the application is proposed.
