An open letter to CBSE by Student Of Class 10th
Dear C.B.S.E Team,
I am student of class 10th, studying in St. Paul’s School, Udaipur, Rajasthan.
Through this letter, I want to raise some questions about the functioning and working of CBSE. This time, I was about to appear for board exams for the first time, so there was tremendous pressure on me to score well. With all my strength, I studied till 3am midnight, for the first paper, English. When I was giving the paper, I found it easy except for two questions of unseen passage. I wasted at least 15 minutes on these questions, ending up with less time for other questions. Still I couldn’t find a suitable answer. I thought I directly lost 2 marks on these questions. With a sad heart, I came home only to get scolded by my parents. After some time, I came to know that it was the question itself was wrong and misguiding. I was very upset because if I hadn’t wasted so much time on the question, I could definitely answer other questions from the writing and literature part better. So, my first question to CBSE is that you are a whole committee of nation’s most intelligent minds operating at central level then can’t you make one question paper correctly? We students are scolded and punished for small mistakes and you are making such silly mistakes then why shall we pay for your mistakes??
Moving on to the next paper which was Science, it was found out that paper contained a wrong 3 marks question again! What is going on? Making so many errors repeatedly? Even we students don’t repeat our mistakes!! Is the whole committee sleeping? Can’t our country’s board of education make papers more seriously? Even local boards are better, at least they are more concerned about their education system!
The last paper was the Maths paper. After the paper, my friends were talking in the WhatsApp group about maths paper that was leaked, but I thought that it was mere a fake news, as the question paper of the CBSE could never be leaked(I thought so). Before the paper, I studied whole night. On the day of exam, I answered all the questions correctly except one, so I was confident about 77+ marks. But I came to knew that paper was Actually leaked. I was heartbroken as some students who might not studied at all were scoring almost full marks and I thought that I just wasted my time and efforts. But how could the question paper of the Central Board be leaked!? Don’t you have any security provisions?
Later, I found out that you are re-conducting the paper. I was humiliated that why do always we, the students pay for their mistakes.. But still, I was relieved that at least it would give justice to us. But after 2-3 days, I am hearing this news that the Maths paper will be re-conducted only in Delhi and Haryana. Why only in these two places when the paper was probably leaked in Rajasthan and other states too! Why are students of other states are facing injustice!? And how can you play so easily with the lives of students? Don’t you know that our future depends on your actions?
Don’t you have a sense of responsibility?
Thanks & Regards
Student Of Class 10th
