Most of the students who were already present to the examination hall were informed about the reschedule of their examinations and sent back home. well, there were few parents who were present with their kids, who had a few conversation about the bandh affecting their child's examinations. Below are the statements what they expressed. (Parents names not revealed)
"Exams are scheduled to start on February 21 but if they are postponed then it will have an adverse effect on their performance in competitive exams. Every child has a study schedule prepared well in advance and any change will send it for a toss. Also these kind of conflicts create a bad impression about the board in top national universities."
Another parent said that shielding kids from these things is tough. "The first three days of the board exam are language papers and if even one date gets postponed, everything will have to be pushed by a week,"
The first major paper of Std XII is English, scheduled for February 23, a parent said, "Immediately after English the next paper is physics, which is major one for my son since he is trying for IIT. He is preparing according to the schedule and even the slightest change will put him off." All of them agreed that not having clear cut idea is the worst part.
Another person, whose nephew is appearing for the exam, says, "It will be better if the government tells us that exams have been postponed, so that these kids can prepare accordingly. But this is becoming like a suspense movie where the end continues to be unpredictable."
A parent says "These are the board exams we are talking about, not regular school stuff. If the government is unable to handle the pressure it will be a major embarrassment for us. Many of the students are applying to universities or national institutes and those people are following the news. So when students appear for admission interviews, they will be facing awkward questions about the board exams."
