Yuva Sena appeals to cancel class 10 ICSE exams

The Yuva Sena has written a letter to the Council of Indian School Certificate exam (CISCE) to ensure the safety of the students. The Yuva Sena, which is the youth wing of the Shiv Sena, in the letter has asked to cancel the 10th class (ICSE) board examination which was to be held from July 2 to July 12.

The letter stated, "Students can be assessed on the basis of subjects for which the examinations have already been conducted or have been made by the council as a preliminary examination or any other unbiased evaluation process at the school level." As a consequence of the lockdown due to the coronavirus pandemic, the time for conducting the ICSE Board Class 10 examinations was scheduled in the month of July. Earlier, the students had been asked to maintain social distancing norms while giving the exams. "Students are required to maintain social distance, use face masks and carry their own sanitizer during exams," The CISCE secretary said to the media.

Yuva Sena under the leadership of Yuva Sena Pramukh and Minister Aaditya Thackeray, discussed the issues with the principles of the ICSE affiliated schools. The youth wing of the Shiv Sena has also mentioned in their letter how the Maharashtra SSC board, the IB board and the Cambridge Board have already cancelled their exams for 2020 in order to safeguard the students. The exams which were postponed as a consequence of the nationwide lockdown due the coronavirus were supposed to be held in the month of July. However, parents across the state have expressed their fear as a result of the ongoing pandemic which has bought the leaders together in trying to delay the upcoming exams. Maharashtra, the worst hit in the country by the coronavirus, has so far seen 74,861 cases with 43,492 cases in Mumbai only.
