Lockdown 3.0: Impact on schools, colleges, board exams and entrance exams

The coronavirus lockdown has further been extended till May 17, 2020. Here's how it will have an impact on schools, colleges, board exams and entrance exams.


Coronavirus lockdown 3.0: Attention students, as per the latest updates, the coronavirus lockdown has been extended till May 17, 2020. The Pan-India lockdown was scheduled to end on May 3, 2020, however, as per the decision taken by the MHA, the lockdown has been extended till May 17, 2020. This means that schools, colleges, institutes, coaching centers across the country will also remain shut till May 17, 2020. Board exams are further postponed which will lead to further postponement of results.

How will this impact on the education sector?

Now, with the extension and further posrponement of board exams there will also be an effect on the evaluation process. Not only CBSE but other state board exams are also been affected with the decision. CBSE secretary Anurag Tripathi has said that all remaining CBSE Class 10 board exams have been cancelled.

And for CBSE Class 12 board exams,  exams of only 12 major subjects would be carried out after the lockdown which would be required for college admissions. But now, the question arises that when will the board conduct the remaining papers.

With this, he also mentioned that it will take around 1 to 2 months for the evaluation process. We are expecting that this will get further delayed due to the extension.

A few days back, UGC released its guidelines which mentioned that the colleges will open from August. Intermediate Semester Students will be graded based on their internal assessment of the present and previous semester. However, exams will be conducted in states where the Covid-19 situation has been normalised in the month of July. Terminal Semester Students will have their exams in July.
