Since all students get promoted to succeeding year there was a question arouse to mark the year 2020 as the default year.
On Monday, the MHRD decision has come to mark this year as Zero Academic years. MHRD ministers ask all institutions to start online classes for students so that they won’t get untouched from the study.
However, there has no order regarding the opening of colleges as corona cases in the country soaring day by day.
Many colleges have started their new academic session from 4 august. AKTU, the UP technical university also ordered its affiliated colleges to make arrangements for providing online classes for their students.
In this post get a complete overview of MHRD decision on marking Academic Year 2020 as the working year.
Impact on College Students
Since it been a long time students haven’t met their friends they wanted to go college but due to the pandemic this time it looks surreal. But institutes are making efforts so that their study will not get affected.
Teachers are providing education to students through online methods and it will continue in the next session also.
Colleges have been taking the online classes since March. Educational institutes are making effort to provide education to all students.
As all students promoted to next year. There was dubiousness about how to start a new academic year ?, when will it start?
Amid all this anomalistic condition many institutions have started their new academic year via an online platform like zoom, google meet.
Governments are making effort to reach all students in every part of the country. But those areas which are farthest from urban it seems quite difficult.
Hilly areas students are also facing problem to attend online classes. North-east students are also facing the same problem.
There are several methods through which teachers are teaching their students. These methods include Zoom classroom, Google meets, Jio -meet, youtube.
These are new pedagogical methods at this time. The government has also started a program with Doordarshan to provide education to those students who don’t have smartphones. There are many students who don’t have smartphones.
To make them study online many NGOs distributed smartphones in remote areas so that no students will untouched from their study.
Any Chance About Opening College
This time it looks quite dubious to open colleges as cases of corona in India expediting. It’s also not safe for students. It will risk their health.
The government has already declared that they would take a decision on opening schools and colleges according to the situation.
However, the country is leading towards the unlocking process. Does this question also arise whether the college will open in the next unlocking stage?
What about Final Year students?
Many states have denied the MHRD ministry order on the final year exam. Students and some state governments have appealed to the Supreme Court regarding the final year exam. Though, the Supreme court refuted this plea.
The final year demanded a degree that as all year students get promoted next year. But the MHRD ministry denied their request. MHRD decision on final year exams has been opposing by various parties.
What’s your opinion on this matter? Comment me about your suggestions.
Would it safe to conduct exams?
What are your views about this? Is it safe to conduct final year exams? According to me, it’s not a good decision. Is any exam above students’ health? As no one in the world is safe from this virus. It has been affecting every age group then how final year students will give an exam.
What if students will get affected? No one has answers to these questions. Students are also worried about this. They want to cancel the exam.
Suggestion on this matter
In my opinion, the government should cancel final year exams and make provisions so that they will get jobs. It’s a prime time for final year students they are worried about their career.
Instead of exams, the government should conduct an online exam from there they will get a job. Are students happy with MHRD decision on final year exams?
