Briefing the media at the side of the function, chairman of Council of Higher Secondary Education Manipur L Mahindra Singh said that 136 higher secondary schools out of the total 188 higher secondary schools have already given their feedback to conduct COHSEM examination.

As such the problems and suggestions of schools which are still against conducting the examinations will also be heard and sorted out during the discussion said the chairman.

Mahindra said COHSEM’s main concern is conducting the examination when students have not been attending classes during the pandemic. The discussion has been organised to take feedback from the principals of the schools whether the examinations will have to be conducted online or offline and to report their feedback to the state government, he added.

As per media reports, it is also learnt that the state government has also framed SOP to be followed when the schools are reopened. However, it is important to take suggestions from the principals whether the schools would be able to the implement the SOP issued by the state government for the schools, he added.

The chairman further said  the examination will be conducted with 30 per cent reduced syllabus and COHSEM has already provided the details of the syllabus to all the schools.
