Classes IX-XII to get new offline exam guidelines
Chief minister Pramod Sawant on Thursday said that considering the prevailing Covid-19 conditions in the state, the directorate of education will issue new guidelines for conducting examinations for students from Classes IX to XII in offline mode. “It was earlier decided to hold examinations from Classes IX to XII in offline mode and for rest of the classes in online mode. Based on it, some schools decided to hold examinations in offline mode. But considering the conditions, we are thinking about it and the directorate of education will issue instructions accordingly,” Sawant, who also holds the education portfolio, said. When asked if Goa too would take a decision like Maharashtra to cancel examinations for students up to Class VIII, he said, “Instead of directly promoting students, let them answer the examination in online mode. At least their ability to study will increase.” Read more: https://www.frontlist.in/pm-narendra-modi-to-interact-with-cms-on-current-covid-19-situation-today/ He said that creating mini containment zones is the alternative available to control the spread of Covid 19. With the increase in number of Covid-19 cases, Sawant said that the bed capacity has increased at the South Goa district hospital, and a Covid care centre has been activited at the ESI hospital in Margao. “We have given emphasis on home isolation, and for that early testing is the only solution. If detected early, we can then isolate the patients,” he said. Sawant said that night curfew won’t help control the spread of the virus. “Being a tourist state, if we implement night curfew then it will have an effect on the tourism industry,” he said. Following Prime Minister Narendra Modi advice, Sawant said that the state government has decided to hold a “Tika Utsav” from April 11 to April 14 to carry out a massive vaccination drive to prevent the spread of Covid-19. The chief minister also said that those who are 45 years of age and above should take the vaccine. Sawant said that Prime Minister Modi ruled out a lockdown as a solution to control the virus. “We have to take precaution to control the spread of Covid-19. We have to wear face masks, maintain social distance and get vaccinated. A lockdown is not a solution,” he said after attending the Prime Minister’s meeting with chief ministers, on Covid. Tika Ustav will be held at various gram panchayats and the list of places will be announced on Friday, Sawant told reporters. He said that Modi urged youths to create awareness about vaccines and Covid-19. “I urge the youths of Goa to create awareness,” he said. Source: TOI
