The COVID-19 pandemic which has spread across the country has caused the classes to be shut for the students across the country. Due to this, the examinations and well as the schedule for the next academic year has been shifted completely. Although boards have taken every step possible to continue classes with the help of online platforms, the fact that internet services are not up to the mark in the interior areas has created a problem for the students from the region.
Along with the online classes conducted by the Uttar Pradesh board, the state government is trying everything in its way to reaching out to the students of the board in the remotest area during the lockdown period. The UP Secondary Education Board in this endeavor will telecast special classes for the class 10 and 12 students on Doordarshan from May 1, 2020.
Officials from the board have taken the steps due to the pandemic which has impacted their studies especially the students who will be appearing for the UP board examinations in 2021.
Principal Secretary of Uttar Pradesh Secondary Education, Aradhna Shukl said that there is uncertainty regarding the school re-opening and in such an extraordinary situation the class 10 and 12 students can start their studies with the help of the special classes which will be aired on DD.
According to the schedule shared, the classes will be broadcasted on DD Swayamprabha - study channel launched by the HRD Ministry. The classes will be conducted for two hours from 10 AM to 12 Noon every day.
Four classes will be conducted from which two will be for class 10 while two will be for class 12 students. Each class will be telecasted for a duration of 30 minutes. Classes will also be repeated in the evening for the students.
The recordings of the videos which are to be aired on DD are underway at the APJ Abdul Kalam Technical University. The teachers explain the chapters which the students can watch on DD. The recordings are made for all the subjects including English, Hindi, Mathematics, Science, and Social Science.REGISTER FOR RESULTS UPDATES
