Student organizations, including the AASU, and opposition parties on Monday called for the immediate withdrawal of a clause in the assessment formulas for the grade 10 and 12 examination process if the COVID-19 situation improves.
The government of Assam launched a file-based assessment process for grades 10 and 12 students on July 1st within the Board of Secondary Education, Assam (SEBA) and the Assam Higher Secondary Education Council (AHSEC), respectively, based on reports from two technical committees of the Ministry of Education. Under this clause, students who wish to become teachers or employees in the Department of Education or any other state government department where the recruitment is “based largely on HSLC or HSSLC grades” must appear for a specific matric or secondary school exam after the pandemic clears .

Clause 5 of both notices states that the grades awarded in the file-based assessment procedure will not be taken into account if these students later apply for a position at the state government in which the grades in grades 10 and 12 are the only assessment criterion.
Education Minister Ranoj Pegu claimed the special exam was necessary so that students in this year’s 10th and 12th grade were on par with previous or future grades only in assessing merit for the job selection process and not for admission to higher grades. However, the student body refused to accept this argument, claiming that this clause made the entire file-based evaluation process redundant and put even more pressure on the students who are already under stress due to the uncertainty about the evaluation process.
The chief advisor of the All Assam Students’ Union (AASU), Samujjal Kumar Bhattacharya, declared this clause completely unacceptable, told PTI: “The evaluation process was recommended by the government appointed committees. Sheet music based on this should keep all future paths open for the students. “We call on the government to reconsider and remove this clause. The students were ready for the exams. It is not your fault. No injustice should be done to your interests. ”With this demand, the AASU had already thrown out letters to the Prime Minister and the Minister of Education on Friday.
The president of the entire Bodo Students Union (ABSU), Dipen Boro, said in the same way: “There should be no separate grade sheets for admission to higher grades and for future application for positions.” Pupil is deemed to have passed the notified file-based assessment procedure, but later fails the special examinations in class 10 or 12, which grade sheet is then applicable?
Similarly, Asom Jatiyatabadi General Secretary Yuva Chhatra Parishad (AJYCP), Palash Changmai, said that this arrangement for a special examination for future government applications was “not at all acceptable”. “Students have endured so much mental torture from the delay in deciding whether to hold exams or not. We can no longer expose them to stress, ”he said and called for this clause to be withdrawn immediately.
The Student Federation of India (SFI) protested the new formulas for the two batches in Guwahati on Saturday, calling on the government to withdraw the clause. Satra Mukti Sangram Samiti (SMSS) said the decision to hold a separate exam in 2022 would jeopardize the careers of nearly seven lakh students in the two classes and called for this “anti-student” notice to be withdrawn.
Meanwhile, opposition leader Debabrata Saikia accused the Assam government of playing with the future of innocent students. “The current Prime Minister, who used to be Minister of Education, knew very well that the exams could have taken place in January or February. But instead of working for the student cause, which was his constitutional duty, he chose to work in the interests of his BJP party, ”he told PTI.
AIUDF lawmaker Rafiqul Islam called the clause “unacceptable” and said students need to prepare for the course next year and continue studying for grades 10 or 12, which puts enormous pressure on them. “The government should withdraw this provision immediately and pursue the process that is being adopted by the other states,” he added.
However, the education minister said on Saturday that the government would hold the exam in the future to clear up disagreements and avoid litigation. “The government can issue the note sheet based on the file-based assessment process. But if the students who passed earlier or will pass in the later years go to court to compete with those students and say they never took the exam, what are we going to do? he asked.
According to the formula for grade 12 students taking practical exams, 50 percent of the overall grades will come from the best of three subjects in grade 10, 30 percent from practical grade 12, 10 percent from internal assessment and attendance in grade 11 and Grade 12, and the remaining 10 percent is provided by AHSEC.
The 12th grade students in business and humanities who do not have a practical exam receive 50 percent of their grades from the best of three subjects in class 10, 40 percent from the internal assessment in grades 11 and 12, and a further 10 Percent are given by AHSEC.
For students in 10th grade, 40 percent of the grades will be based on performance in 9th grade, 40 percent on performance assessment in 10th grade and 20 percent on the school’s internal performance assessment. Students who are dissatisfied with their grades or the assessment process have the option of attending the regular exams by September 15 or the examination date, with the notice that the results will be announced by July 31.
