Engish Exam? Okay, Write a Note on Virat Kohli!

National Edu News

"Keep updated with changing time" - a phrase we often hear but seldom see that in practice. The West Bengal Board of Secondary Education  deserves kudos for following this. In the question paper for Class X English Exam, they included a question about Indian star cricketer Virat Kohli.

The students were asked to write about the ace batsman's life and career in 100 words, based on some reference points given in the English second language paper.

It was a 10-mark question. Though there were options available to opt out this question, most of the students opted to attempt it. Some were of the opinion that they could write it even without the hints or pointers!

Teachers, students, and parents rate this as a good move! Cricketer-turned MLA Laxmi Ratan Shukla said the board has done the right thing by introducing a topic on Kohli in the question paper.

"I think questions on icons of other sports too should be introduced in future by the West Bengal Board of Secondary Education and others," he said.

Board president Kalyanmoy Ganguly said, "Kohli is the newest addition. There had been questions on the lives of popular figures in the past as well."

Over 11 lakh students wrote the English paper in the examination conducted by the Board last week.
