Knowledge is power.
The students should be properly advised by their parents and teachers about the facts and ask them to prepare well for the examinations. If there is any sense that prevails in the leaders, they should not announce any automatic promotions. Yesterday I was talking to an intermediate student. He mentioned to me that he appeared for English 1 and 2 but the papers are tough.
Interestingly, it is reported today that there was an agitation by the students at one renowned university in West Bengal where the students demanded an online examination instead of an offline pen and paper examination. Their logic is since the classes were held online and the offline examination was announced without enough time to prepare they want an online examination.
