C.B.S.E. lets down visually disabled students appearing for Board exams

DNIS News Network - Visually impaired students face unsatisfactory arrangements at exam centres.

Students with visual impairment appearing for their Central Board of Secondary Examinations (C.B.S.E.) Std. X exam were extremely unhappy with the arrangements made for them at various examination centres in Delhi.

The National Federation for the Blind alleges that the centre superintendents refused to accept the identity proofs of the scribes accompanying the students. This resulted in considerable delay for the students, who could not start the exam on time.

The students and the Federation have demanded that the C.B.S.E. should issue a statement to all examination centres that they should accept the certificates (that identify writers for visually impaired students) issued by the Principal of the blind students’ school. This would be of immense help to such students in writing their exams well and in time.
