The last thing students want on the day of their board examinations is a change in exam centre, but that is precisely what hit over 500 of them on Tuesday, 21st Feb.
While 300 students who were assigned a college in Ghatkopar were reportedly informed at the last minute about a change in centre, 200 in Kalyan faced a similar problem. There was a slight miscommunication and an examination centre in Kalyan got over 500 students for English. They could not accommodate all students, so 200 had to be transferred to our college, said Rukmini Mardhanan, chief coordinator, Birla College. She added that the change in centres were announced on Saturday itself and the students were informed too. At Vidya Niketan Junior College in Ghatkopar, 300 who were supposed to appear for English on 21st were told that their centre was changed. They were then told to go to a nearby sub-centre. For subjects like English, which is compulsory, some centers’ end up receiving more candidates than they can accommodate, and this is when students are shifted to sub-centers’, which are always very close to the main centre, said the principal of a suburban junior college. She added that the main reason for such last-minute problems was the increasing number of candidates, compared to exam centers’. We understand that many students are getting confused because of multiple centres, but we can’t change this now. We will ensure students don’t face problems anymore and we will discontinue this practice from next year, said Sarjerao Jadhav, chairman of the Maharashtra State Board of Secondary & Higher Secondary Education.
