Last year, PM Modi had held the session in February and discussed exam-related issues with lakhs of students from across the country, through a video conference from the same venue. The PM had managed to connect with as many as ten crore children on the occasion, said reports.
On the occasion, he had begun by saying, “Forget that you talking to a prime minister, talk to me as a friend and share with me all the doubts you have. It is like an exam for me. You are all my examiners. Let’s see how many marks you give me.”
The government had asked the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) to ask schools to make arrangements so that students could view the interaction. “I am extremely eager to interact with young friends, teachers and parents on the need to appear for exams with a smile, without any stress,” the PM had tweeted ahead of the event.
Around the same time last year, HRD Minister Prakash Javadekar and External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj had launched ‘Exam Warriors’, a book written by the PM. The book, penned by PM Modi is meant for students and is to help them overcome exam fear.
It was published by Penguin India and runs into 208 pages. It has also been published in many Indian languages like Odiya, Marathi, Telugu and Urdu.
