As COVID-19 cases across the country, reaches it peak, several students of CBSE Class 12 are demanding that the CBSE and the Central government should cancel the CBSE Class 12 Board Exam 2021.
Several Class 12 students have been tweeting the CBSE, Prime Minister’s Office, and Union Education Ministry seeking the cancellation of CBSE Class 12 Board Exams 2021. Though CBSE 10th exams are cancelled, the 12th board exams has been postponed. There are several meetings on how it will not be prudent to evaluate internal assessments of the students, which might effect their future.
“These are unprecedented times. Instead of cancelling the Class 12 exams, there is a need to think out-of-the-box and plan to conduct the exams differently. Since the lockdown was announced last year, teachers and students are doing their job quite efficiently. However, cancelling the exam outright is certainly not a solution. There is a pressing need for coming up with alternative solutions in conducting the exams this year,” said a teacher.
“If the exams could not be conducted in July, then we can not further delay conducting the exam. As the entire exam process takes more than a month including evaluation of copies and result declaration. If suppose the result be declared by the end of August, how will the students take admission in varsities, higher education institutions”, informed a higher official.
