With the current scenario of Coronavirus, there is a possibility the Education Ministry may cancel the Class 12 board exams conducted by the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE).
India has already registered 3,62,727 cases in the last 24 hours while the daily Covid death count hit a grim record with 4,120 deaths. With 533 districts in India registering more than 10 per cent Covid positivity rate and the disease spreading to rural centres in the deadly and ferocious second wave, several students and their parents have demanded complete cancellation of CBSE Class 12 Board Exams 2021.
Earlier after a meeting between Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Education Minister Ramesh Pokriyal Nishank, the CBSE Class 12 Board Exams 2021 that was scheduled to begin from May 4, 2021, was postponed on April 14.
The CBSE on April 14 had announced the cancellation of Class 10 Board Exams and now it had left the final decision on Class 12 Board Exams for a later date pending review of the Covid-19 situation.
As a pet, a senior CBSE official asserted that it is unlikely that exams are going to be conducted anytime soon in the current situation. But the former CBSE Chairperson Ashok Ganguly exuded confidence that the situation would improve and the Class 12 board exams can be held in July. While other experts are suggesting conducting the examination via online mode.
