CBSE Class XII examinations have been canceled. Prime Minister Narendra Modi took this decision in a high level meeting. It has also been decided that the results of class XII will be prepared according to a well defined objective criterion in a time bound manner. The Prime Minister said in the meeting that the decision on CBSE’s 12th examination has been taken in the interest of the students.
He said that Kovid-19 has affected the academic calendar and the issue of board exams is causing immense concern among students, parents and teachers, which should be abolished.
PM said – do not force to sit in the examination
During the meeting, the PM said that the health and safety of our students is of utmost importance and there will be no compromise on this aspect. He said that our priority is the concern of students, parents and teachers, which should be addressed. The PM further said that in such a tense situation, students should not be forced to appear in the examination and for this all the stakeholders need to show sensitivity towards the students.
The PM said that the situation of Kovid across the country is a dynamic situation. While the numbers are dwindling in the country and some states are managing the situation through effective micro-control. Some states have still opted for the lockdown. In such a situation, students, parents and teachers are naturally concerned about the health of the students. The PM said that in such a stressful situation, students should not be forced to sit for the examination.
‘Can’t put youth at risk’

It was also decided that like last year, if some students wish to take the examination, such option would be provided to them by CBSE, if the situation permits.
