Parents and students who had centers far away left their homes about three to four hours before their reporting time. But most of them reported to their centers on time. A Kandivali parent who was given a center in Panvel left home at 9 a.m. She said the facility in the center was good and there was no overcrowding. Ruiee Kapoor, a parent representative, said the arrangements in most city centers are very good. “The centers have been managed reasonably well and social distancing norms have been followed well. So far, there have been no major negative reports,” Kapoor said.
In a center in Wadala, students who were due to report at 11:15 a.m. were not allowed into the examination room for almost an hour, which caused confusion among parents and students. A parent whose child showed up from the center said the delay in admitting students had resulted in overcrowding near the entrance. Standard operating procedures were not strictly followed. Forget about social distancing. We are also now concerned that students have enough time to sit around the house to try the paper. The reporting time was staggered but there were delays in getting them up admitting the campus, “said one parent, adding that it was completely badly managed.
