Schools have been closed for 10 months this year due to the Covid-19 epidemic and lockdown, and students are studying through online classes. Supporting the minister’s announcement, the Mumbai Principals Association (MPA) said the exams should be extended further as students would not have enough time to prepare for these important exams.

The MPA said, ‘Online classes are good, but not very effective. No decision has yet been made to reopen the school for regular classes. This is probably not the case in January-February 2021. “Students have March-April left to prepare for the exams,” said Principal Prashant Reddys, MPA secretary.
At the same time, many people in urban areas are still stuck in their ancestral villages, due to which their exam preparation is not being done properly. Reddys expressed concern that “this year, academic standards, student performance and board results may be declining.” According to MPA estimates, there are more than 1.5 million schools in the state with more than 10 million students and about 1 million teachers in the public and private sectors. On the other hand, parents and students are also worried that they will not be able to enjoy the second year in a row of summer vacation.
