Full syl­labus ex­ams put a lot of pres­sure on stu­dents. The con­tin­u­ous com­pre­hen­sive eval­u­a­tion (CCE) sys­tem en­cour­aged stu­dents to par­tic­i­pate in ex­tracur­ric­u­lar ac­tiv­i­ties in­stead of fo­cus­ing just on aca­demics. It also di­vided the syl­labus into smaller parts. How can any­one ex­pect a stu­dent to mem­o­rise an en­tire book which is taught over an en­tire year? As a Class-9 stu­dent, I have no time left for play­ing or so­cial­is­ing. Chil­dren shouldn’t be treated as adults and it’s im­por­tant to un­der­stand that ev­ery child has their own ca­pac­ity and ca­pa­bil­ity. Man­roop Kaur
