Leaked English Paper II - Needed Justice

Where in the name of the financial echo is the life of thousand innocent lives stand?

I felt the need is urgent to consider the re-conducting of exam for leaked English paper II. Otherwise, thousands are missing their different career tracks, since the mark obtained in English determines their overall performance standard.

Now, all the rumors of redoing of exam have come to its conclusion after the BCSEA board recently announced for not conducting re-exam for the leaked paper.  Thus, it sounded to me that the call is over and the game is played just for the sake. Other way - this has given us the clear picture of where Bhutan would lie in near future. Besides that - the decision taken would definitely divide between poor and the good students.

But, here my point is not to defend or go against any of the concern agencies rather my point is just to benefit our children those who did not get access to questions.

How fair the justification is true over the leaked paper? Can it be fair to award the marks simply looking at English paper I?

To this fact, thousands of concern parents and students felt the decision taken by the panel members was a complete un-fair and the poignant one. In particular, I felt the ultimate losers would be our students from the deprived back-grounds. Because, these are the students who did not have access to any of the facilities – studying in the boarding school with the limited available resources, inadequate parental guidance, references books and other essentials.
I felt it was not the decent reasons to defend against for not conducting re-exam for the leaked paper just in the name of financial crisis. As simply examining past papers and awarding marks wouldn't be enough to justify all of this and their hard-work for whole year. 

How far is true to this analysis sufficient/valid and to what point does it stand and to what extend it would justify?

Can it be possible to cancel the re-exam for leaked paper, when thousands of life is already losing their stand, their beautiful life?

It is high time for us to think on the decision taken before things go in disorder. Did our concern agency taken care of the thousands of innocent lives? How far is fair to our children coming from rural back-ground and deprived family? Or to those who did not have access to questions before exam? 

In any reason the punishment should not be the same for those who did not have accessed to questions.Whatever may be the decision it shouldn't harm any of those innocent children studying in rural areas. Perhaps, they should be given extra motive than the students studying in urban areas with all the facilities – mobile phones of their choice, access to net, references books, nutritional diets and so on...

As many of the children are from the rural background and I’m sure to those rural lots, the only ways to score marks in English is just by reading the syllabus text judiciously. I’m sure the decisions have already disheartened thousands of hard-working and the sincere students across the country.    

If English I can compensate for English II, then there's no point having separate text book containing different genre for learning, teachers and other resources. And I'm sure that the hard work/time/energy taken for the whole academic year is of no use otherwise. 

Now, the panel had decided to award marks for English II equal to the marks obtained in English I. For me, whatever maybe - this decision would dis-heartened many decent and hard-working and the students those who did not have access to questions.

Nevertheless, the factors like the financial cost, hassle to students and logistic should not be compensated with the life of thousands innocent life. So, what we all need is to re-conduct the exam for more fair and justice to save thousands of lives.
