It’s ‘back to school’ as usual, or maybe this time it’s not so usual! The Covid pandemic has changed the way we learn, commute, work and eat. Many safety measures have been put in place to contain the spread of the virus. There is no major country in the world that has managed to walk past this crisis unscathed.
Students have had to get schooled from the confines of their homes, remotely and although this style of learning has numerous benefits, getting back to schools will pose challenges of their own.
One of those challenges is the resumption of strictly monitored examinations. Be it competitive exams or regular subject tests or final exams, the challenges will be the same. Over the span of nearly a year of lockdowns, students have grown accustomed to a non-competitive environment.
Although there may be exceptions to this case the large majority of the student community has been facing these challenges.
