Chief Minister Sawant in his tweet said “After extensive consultations, it has been decided that the Class 12 exams shall be cancelled, as the health & safety of our students is of utmost priority. This will also help put an end to the anxiety amongst the students, parents and teachers. The results will be declared as per a well-defined objective criteria.”
There is still ambiguity with regards to CM’s statement of ‘Well defined criteria’. Earlier on Wednesday morning while speaking to the press regarding the assessment of HSSC students Sawant said “We have three suggestions in front of us right now. One is to cancel the examination, second is to declare result on internal assessment of marks and allow those to appear for examination, who wants to opt for it and third is to declare both the results (internal assessment and examination) together,”
How will it affect students ?
Retired senior lecturer of Physics in Dempo college of Arts and Science, Sunil Prabhu while speaking to Goa News Hub said “The decision taken by government on HSSC exams will affect Arts and Science students, their admissions for undergraduate (UG) courses will be delayed”
