Hyderabad: The Telangana School Education department has decided to conduct SSC examination with six papers for the academic year 2021-22.
This decision has been taken by the School Education department in view that the schools have not functioned in a full fledged manner due to the corona pandemic. Usually, SSC students have 11 papers i.e. each two papers for one subject except for the second language.
However, due to the Corona virus outbreak, the government has cancelled exams for the SSC students consecutively for two years. The education department said that the government decided to give six papers for the SSC students as the schools are not being run completely.
Although the education department decided to conduct classes for 166 days, the Gurukul schools were not opened yet and also, there is no complete attendance in the classes even after schools were reopened. Considering all these aspects, the government has taken the decision. In addition to reducing the number of papers, the government also provided the students a possibility of writing an Urdu exam for the second language paper.
