Many philanthropists and educationists were also asked to give their opinion about the same.

The feedback form is accessible on the official website of the Intermediate board where any student or parent can give their opinion. The people submitting the feedback must insert their name, contact number, Aadhaar card number and a detailed address. The form gives people the option to choose how many children should constitute a class, what percentage of the instruction should be video based, or whether this session should be considered a zero academic year.
People can select if they would like a 20 percent or 30 percent reduction in the syllabus. Other questions are regarding the commencement of shift system and percentage of online classes. Submissions will be accepted till 5 pm on 31 July, 2020.
