Educators, students hail India’s proposal to scrap exams

Change is in the air for the Indian education system as the country’s Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) is planning to do away with school exams from 2021, The Indian Express reported.As per recommendations of the draft National Education Policy (NEP) committee, the MHRD will modernise the evaluation process from 2021, the newspaper quoted an MHRD official as saying. This will be a major departure from the legacies of the NEP, which followed the “10+2” format in the school education system since 1968. The government is examining all possibilities to finalise the NEP by October 2020, with the policies being implemented from 2021.
