AP Govt postpones Inter exams following High Court’s Orders

Following constant protests from Opposition parties and demands from the student community, the Andhra Pradesh Government, on Sunday, announced that it shall be postponing Intermediate examinations.
 
Given that the examinations were scheduled to start from May 5, 2021, but due to a spike in state-19 cases across the state, the High Court has directed the state to reconsider its ill-informed decision. Eventually, bowing to the pressure from the High Court, the Jagan government budged and agreed to postpone.
 
Meanwhile, social media was rife with demands for students to postpone the exams as 10 lakh students and their families would be at the risk of contracting COVID-19 virus. Many calls on social media and campaigns had begun to ask the CM if “their life was of lesser value” and why the government was behaving “so sadistically” in the middle of a deadly pandemic. 
 
Eventually, a lot of students from Andhra Pradesh thanked TDP General Secretary, Nara Lokesh, for taking up the campaign in full force and putting pressure on the government. 
 
Additionally, Lokesh thanked the Education Minister for a timely decision in saving the lives of lakhs of students and their parents from the Covid-19 threat (by postponing the examinations for the first and second year Intermediate students in the State).
 
Moreover, the TDP also appealed to the Jagan government to take a conscious decision on the 10th class exams which were scheduled to begin in a month’s time. 
 
Now, the new dates for conducting inter-examinations will be announced as soon as the pandemic eases. Several states have cancelled the exams for some students while some states have given pass certificates to students.
