AP Inter Exams: AP intermediate exams: Arrangements are in place for exams, minister Suresh


AMARAVATI: Determined to go ahead with the conduct of the Intermediate examinations, the state government has clarified that AP is not the only state that is conducting the class-XII examinations across the country. Education minister Dr. Adimulapu Suresh has said that no state in the country had suspended the Intermediate examinations. He said that the government had set up 1451 centres to conduct Intermediate examinations across the state.

Speaking to the media here on Thursday, the minister said that they have set up 41 more centres than the examination centres of last year. “We are taking all precautions including sanitation and social distance in the examination halls. The students and examiners should attend the exams with masks,” said the minister. He said that the students could start downloading the hall tickets from Thursday evening. The exams are slated to begin on May 5.

Minister said that the government had decided to conduct the examinations keeping in view of the future of the students. He said that there was no need for the students or their parents to worry about the situation in the examination halls. He said that exams would be held in the highest number of centres-146-in the East Godavari district and the lowest-60 centres in Guntur district. He said that they have appointed a covid-19 special officer to every district. He said that the special officers would ensure the covid-19 protocols at all the exam centres. He said that they would sanitise all the centres every till the completion of the examinations on May, 19. He said that they have also set up thermal scanners in all the centres to check the temperature of the students and teachers. He said that the students with abnormal temperature would be given seating in a separate room while the invigilators with high temperature will be withdrawn from the duty.

Dr. Suresh said that they have set up separate isolation rooms in all the examination centres to facilitate the smooth conduct of the examinations. He charged that the opposition leaders were making false campaigns demanding the cancellation of the examinations without any responsibility.

Meanwhile, social media is razed with demands from the parents and students to suspend the examinations. Many parents were expressing apprehensions about the safety of allowing their children to travel in APRTC buses to reach the examination centres in the given health crisis. “The government is unnecessarily taking the issue of Intermediate examinations to its prestige just because TDP demanded the cancellation of the exams. It should consider fears of the parents and students,” asked a parent Ram Makireddy.

Another parent M C Kesava Reddy of Guntur wanted to know as to which prestigious higher education institution is giving direct admission to the students based on Intermediate examinations. He said that the government had not applied any common sense before taking such a sensitive decision. Former IIT professor G Narayana Sarma of Ananthapuram said that the government should at least postpone the examinations till July if not cancellation. “My parents are in hospital with covid-19 treatment and I have kept my children at my brothers’ residence. How shall I send them to exams with mental peace?” asked Hussain Saheb of Narasaraopet.
