Big breaking news for class 12th students, who are eagerly waiting for board exam dates. The decision to cancel the CBSE 12th board exam was taken in a high-level meeting, chaired by prime minister Modi. Due to the second wave of COVID-19, a plea has been filed in the supreme court to cancel the board exam. It will be heard on Thursday (June 3).
Earlier, the central education minister held a meeting with chief ministers and education ministers of all states across the country. On the other hand, students and their parents were requesting to cancel the board exam.
Students were Waiting for 1 June
In that meeting only, all states said "yes" to conduct the 12th board exams and other professional exams, except Delhi. Finally, the decision regarding this exam was expected on June 1 (today). In the meantime, schools and exam centers were ordered to sanitize the premises.
Teachers and Students Security
Earlier, the education minister assured the students and teachers about their security, in back-to-back tweets. He said that no decision will be taken against the safety of students and teachers.
CBSE Board Exam was Proposed in August
According to media reports, the board exam was proposed between 15 July to 26 August. Also, the education ministry got the suggestion to conduct the exam in half-hour. In that exam, only multiple-choice questions were supposed to ask. Last year’s board exam was also canceled due to the same reason.
