They feel that the Time Table is too 'Compact'. The subjects are tightly packed, they said. Students seem to be busy in charting out their revision schedule.
With the exams to start from 2nd March with Mathematics, most of the students are concerned about Science and Social studies. They feel that paper with a consolidation on Physics, Chemistry and Biology is scheduled for March 14 and Social science is on March 12. They strongly feel that they is just one single day left for Science syllabus revision.
However, the boards decision of handling exam in just two weeks has really left children as well as their parents concerned about results. But, last year schedule tells that the exams were held for about three weeks.
With all parents and students keeping their view in front of the board, the Principal of Delhi Public School, South Manju Sharma says "With no information from the board on the reason behind the packed schedule, schools say that this may be because of board-based and school-based examination pattern that started three years ago. After March 14, schools can do their examinations. Moreover, the board examination now is based on half of the syllabus. Students write only lessons taught post-october".
When compared the schedule with last year, CBSE has reduced the examination period to three weeks and this year they have chopped off another week.
