GUWAHATI: The APCC (Assam Pradesh Congress Committee) has urged the Chief Minister to take a concrete decision to conduct the SEBA and AHSEC examinations.
"…Many universities in the country have started the process of admission into higher classes. In Assam also, Tezpur University and Assam University, Silchar have started the same process. But in Assam, no final decision has been taken about conducting the offline examination of SEBA and AHSEC till now. Meanwhile, the Minister of Education made a series of announcements about holding the examination but without any clarity. It has left the students, parents and the teachers in uncertainty, distress and mental agony," wrote APCC president Ripun Bora in a letter to the CM.
Bora asserted that several hundreds of students and their parents are not only battling with their lives every day but also under a great amount of trauma of losing their loved ones. Under such circumstances, it is not feasible to hold SEBA and AHSEC examinations in Assam, he added.
"In this regard, I recommend you to immediately formulate a mechanism or an evaluation scheme to cope up with CBSE's internal assessment. This will be only possible by deliberating with eminent educationists, student unions, students themselves and other important stakeholders. Further on that basis, the examinations could be struck down for this year, to stop the loss of their extremely precious academic year," the letter read.
