As a part of our highly paced up life, everything that we use today, be it the Delhi Metro or the computer that we use involves a substantial contribution of young engineers who graduate from prolific grounds of excellence in technological advancements acting as pillars of modern infrastructure, who really need to know the convention in order to break through and create better to uplift the poignant situation of our developing nation. Yet, in order to make the process more comfortable for the authorities and students, so to say we are neglecting the quality as well.

Glancing through last month’s edition of India Today, the date goes back to 6th August 2015, the headlines proclaimed the anticipated exemption of class 12th board exam results as a working criteria of admission into NIT’s (National Institutes of Technology).

Let’s assume a situation where a toad plunges into a bowl of water lit on a high flame, as the temperature rises slowly, accordingly the toad adjusts to the variance in temperature, but what if a toad plunges into a bowl of boiling water? What then? Yes. It would reach the level of exhaustion and dissolve into nothingness. This is exactly how we’re crippling young minds by giving them a sudden blow in the face of it when they won’t be aware of the kind of workload they would be welcomed with while they would be busy weaving the melodrama of their college life.

It was shocking to know that just because a few state boards failed to submit the class 12th board exam results to CBSE on time and faults in data entry by the authorities themselves, are the laws for the entire education strata being changed. Earlier, it was a 40% of the entire score card that was considered along with that of the entrance, but would the batch after the batch of 2013 be experimented with? Would it be considered as the ‘toad of the right wing politics’? Just because the authorities can’t function efficiently, why must the students suffer? 2013 was the year when CBSE boards for class 10th were called off and now an affirmation of exemption of the CBSE results by the CSAB (Central Seat Allocation Board) would although give a fair chance to those who couldn’t score well in their board exams but would also take away the zeal with which students who really worked hard to fare well triggered their percentage in the entrance exams.

If laws continue to change as per the relaxation period been proposed to the students and authorities, in no time would there be yet another prospect with the agreement of the HRD minister to exempt the 12th class board exams as well, leading to a natural blow and mental exhaustion.
