Amid the second wave Covid pandemic, offline classes were not held, and more than half of the syllabus was covered by online mode. Still, over 5 lakhs of students have appeared for the examination, which was held from April 29 till May 7.
The 10th and 12th batch have attended maximum of their classes by online mode, which somehow had affected their concentration, their approach being unable to interact properly with the teachers teaching online.
The Odisha State Education department left no stones unturned to make the syllabus easy and understandable for the students. The BSE Odisha created a youtube channel so that all the students across the state, irrespective of any district, were allowed to attend the classes, where all the chapters were holistically covered by renowned, experienced, and highly professional teachers of the state.
Feedback From Parents
One of the fathers of a 10th standard boy Alok Panigrahi said, “Students have appeared for the board exams this year amid several difficulties; the BSE Odisha must acknowledge their effort and hardwork and soon publish the results so that the student can properly plan their forthcoming academics.”
A Mother of a 12th-standard girl named Girisha Sahu addressed the forthcoming JEE and NEET examination. She urges, “The state board to publish results as soon as possible and not to delay the results, as the students are already packed up with the competitive exam preparation, and the delay of 10th and 12th results may accelerate their anxiety,” she stated.
It seems that the students have given their best amid the second wave of the pandemic, which is considered more serious than the first wave. High hopes for the student; they will come out with bright colors and make Odisha proud.
