Indian Govt Launches Exam On ‘Cow Science’
In a surprising move, the government of the Bharatya Janata Party (BJP) in India has announced a national-level voluntary online exam on “gau vigyan” [cow science]. The exam can be taken free of cost.
Indian media reported that the government body Rashtriya Kamdhenu Aayog (RKA) specifically set up for the welfare of cows has taken the initiative of “Kamdhenu Gau-Vigyan Prachar-Prasar Examination” to spread awareness about cows.
India media has reported that the exam aims to generate interest about the “indigenous cow and its benefits”.
“For raising mass awareness about the indigenous cows among young students and every other citizen, the RKA decided to conduct a national exam on cow science,” said RKA chairman Vallabhbhai Kathiria.
RKA has drafted the course material, schedule and procedure of how the cow science exam will be conducted.
The annual test for this year has been scheduled for February 25. The exam has four categories:(1) primary level up to grade 8, (2) secondary level from grade 9 to 12, (3) college level and (4) general public.
The syllabus for the exam is available on the RKA website. Further, the exam is objective and the questions will be such that there would be no room for cheating.
