Bihar Polytechnic students want online or openbook exams. The polytechnic exam is scheduled to be held on January 27. Amid rising cases of coronary heart disease, the student is not ready for the offline exam. Students enrolled in Bihar Polytechnic Institutions (Government / Government Women cum Private Polytechnic Institutions) come from different districts of the state. The examination center of many students is 200-400 km away from home. Students say how could they travel so far in the midst of an epidemic and pass an exam? Not only that, there are many students who are infected with Corona and because of this they will be deprived of exams.

These students are not demanding postponement of exams as they are also afraid of delay in further studies. Students demand that their exam should be online / open book medium. They have been tweeting with the hashtag #SBTEBiharOnlineExamLo for the last several days so that they can convey their demand to the State Board of Technical Education, Bihar.

The students tried to meet Technical Education Minister Sumit Kumar Singh to present their grievances before the board, but they could not be reached. The students have submitted an application to the minister and the board opposing the offline examination.

A student named Shivam Singh told Navbharat Times, “I have been positive for Korona for the last few days and my father and my mother have also become positive due to my contact. My examination center is located at a distance of 200 kilometers from my home. Traveling by public transport in this epidemic can be fatal for me and my family members. Please give us relief by conducting exams online or through open book.

Astha, a student says, “I am a Bihar diploma student, I have lost a lot in the last few months due to Kovid. My uncle died during the first wave of Corona last year from which we could not get out that 2 months later my father also became a victim of Kovid and he also left us. Who else will be helpless against us? Our mother would not let us give ourselves to Corona for the exam.

Aman, a student, says, “I am from Begusarai and my examination center has been given to GP Motihari, who has no food around. As well as the fear of getting infected by traveling 300-400 kilometers. Therefore, I humbly request the Minister of Technical Education of the Government of Bihar and the Technical Education Councilor of the State to conduct the examinations of all Diploma students online or through open book.
