Over 2 lakh students of Class 10, whose board exams got cancelled due to covid-19, have sent in their suggestions to the state education department on holding an entrance test for next year’s admissions.
Since Class 10 exams have been cancelled across all academic boards, the State Council of Education, Research and Training (SCERT), Maharashtra, has started an online survey asking state board, CBSE, CICSE, IB students to respond whether a common entrance test should be conducted for admissions to Class 11.
Apart from this, the department has also initiated another survey for schools asking them to fill out forms on whether or not marking students based on internal assessment for Class 10 is feasible.
According to sources in the Maharashtra education department, currently an offline test comprising multiple choice questions is being considered in the month of July as a part of the CET. The survey forms can be filled by visiting the link, https://www.research.net/r/11thCETEST
Meanwhile, in just one day, 14,379 secondary schools in the state sent their suggestions while 2,14,166 Class 10 students indicated their preferences on a CET for Class 11 admissions, confirmed Vikas Garad, deputy director, SCERT Maharashtra.
Both the surveys will continue till midnight on May 11.
