Defer Class 10 exams, say worried students   

 While politicians are refusing to budge from their positions in the standoff over a common school syllabus in the state, Class 10 students are getting increasingly nervous at the prospect of being forced to take their final examinations without adequate time for preparation.

With the imbroglio over the common syllabus, Samacheer Kalvi, resulting in textbooks being delayed this academic year, Class 10 students have urged the state government to postpone board examination from March to May next year. With the case in court and the textbooks unlikely to be printed till September, the students fear teachers will not be able to complete the syllabus in time for their finals.

Speaking to DC on Saturday, P. Vijay, a Class 9 student at a private matriculation school in the city, said teachers have not taught anything for the past month, as they have no textbooks or syllabus.
“We very worried as the case is pending in the high court. The government should think of our plight before it makes a decision on this issue,” he said.

S. Muthukumaran, a Class 10 student in a government school, said the situation is much worse in government schools where teachers are not taking any classes at all.

“Students from affluent families can opt for private tuitions, but think of our plight. We request the state government to postpone Class 10 board exams from March to May as we will be left with only six months to prepare,” he said.

Teachers, meanwhile, have raised doubts over whether it will be possible for schools to conduct quarterly examinations in September.

Science teacher Shantha, who works at a private matriculation school, said she had been teaching students the fundamentals of science.

“Without knowing the syllabus we need to follow it is tough for us to teach core subjects,” she said. “We have been teaching lessons that are common to both Samacheer Kalvi and the old syllabus to use this unofficial holiday in a useful manner.”
