One day after the Maharashtra State Board of Secondary and Higher Secondary Education (MSBSHSE) issued a circular stating the date and curriculum for the upcoming CET for admission to Junior College (FYJC) courses at the first year announced, students from other schools education committees are a lot of concern.
Parents as well as ICSE school groups have reached out to the state education minister Varsha Gaikwad, who described the CET exam as unfair to students from bodies other than the state Maharashtra board.
“We understand that the CET exam will be conducted based on the State Board’s Grade 10 curriculum and will take into account English, math, science and social sciences alike. However, on the ICSE board, students have the option to drop out of math and science in grades 9 and 10. So how do our students prepare for this exam? ”Explained a letter from the Association of ICSE Schools in Maharashtra to Minister Varsha Gaikwad.
However, Gaikwad was unavailable for comments.
This year, grade 10 exams in several school education boards were canceled due to rising Covid-19 cases. The results for the grade 10 batch were based on the performance of the students in grades 9 and 10 combined. While the other boards are not yet due to announce results, MSBSHSE released SSC results on Friday, July 16.
According to the State Board’s circular on Monday, there will be an optional continuing education exam based solely on the SSC curriculum and consisting of multiple choice questions (MCQs) for 100 points. This two-hour work will be conducted in physical mode on August 21 from 11am to 1pm, and registrations for this exam will begin today.
Last month, an ICSE grade 10 student also turned to the Bombay Supreme Court for help on the matter. The student’s petition points to the “bias” against students from other bodies and the added stress for students. This matter is due to be heard for the second time on July 22nd and parents and ICSE schools are hoping for relief.
Similarly, the International Schools Association (MISA) members reached out to Gaikwad for clarity on whether the grade 10 exam results of International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) students instead of the CET results at the time of the FYJC approval can be considered.
“In contrast to other grade 10 students, our children came to their exams in physical mode, despite the increasing fear of Covid. Therefore, these students should be allowed to apply for admission based on their exam results, ”MISA said in a letter addressed to Gaikwad. They also looked for clarity as to whether IGCSE students attending CET will have a choice at admission to choose between their board score and CET score, whichever is higher.
“It would be unfair not to offer the students a level playing field. We asked the Education Minister to hold a meeting with all stakeholders to better understand the issue, ”said Anubha Sahai, President of India Wide Parent Association (IWPA).
