AHMEDABAD: After conducting online exams in the wake of Kovid-19, some city schools want to revert to the pen-and-paper format. While the Udgham School Deo for Children has sought permission from the villagers, other schools such as Prakash Higher Secondary have begun planning offline intermediate exams for students with the permission of the authorities.

Sujata Tandon, Principal of Udgham Children’s School, has written a letter to the DEO Rural Letter to allow the school to conduct offline examinations for grades 9 to 12 The school is central to the latest CA exams and believes it is possible to conduct tests for its students with safety measures. “We have 315 students and only 12 students in one class. We are conducting online classes and exams but this time we cannot conduct online exams,” he wrote to DEO Rural VR Vas on Tuesday.

Principal of Prakash Higher Secondary School, Murien Shah, said that they have already devised plans to conduct offline exams for 10th and 12th grades. “We have set guidelines for students to wear masks and gloves, carry sanitizers and maintain social gaps. We plan to accommodate only 10 students in a classroom to ensure safety,” he said, adding that the school is in the process of getting permission from authorities.

DEO Vyas, who confirmed that he had received a letter from Udgam, said: “After reviewing the guidelines, we will process it.” Officials at the DOO office said the district authority had the right to grant permission since the center did not allow the campuses to open yet.
