class ix students get 30 mins extra to complete papers in exams
Writing answer sheets in a limited time has always given students a feeling of hanging Sophocles’ sword upon their heads. They have to speed up their brain and writing speed to complete all answers to get more marks. But tense and extra-pressurised minds do not produce desired results. Considering this problem, CBSE has ordered all its affiliated schools to go easy with the deadlines.Now, students of class IX will have 30 minutes as extra time to finish their papers. The new CBSE circular says “allow students flexible timing to answer question papers. This may vary from 3 to 3:30 hours.” The move has come as a breeze for all students of class IX. Teachers feel that the move will remove tension of the students to a great extent and now, they can devote time to write in good hand-writing and think while answering questions. The decision is a boon for slow writers. Now, language papers which have long essays will be easier to write. This reform has received 360-degree appreciation.
