The government has canceled the CBSE 12th exam this year. This decision was taken after an important meeting of Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday. During the meeting, the Prime Minister said that right now the safety of the students is our priority. It is not right to give them exam stress in such an environment. We cannot put their lives in danger.
The meeting was attended by the Chairman of CBSE, Secretary, Ministry of Education, besides Union Ministers Amit Shah, Nirmala Sitharaman, Piyush Goyal, Dharmendra Pradhan, Rajnath Singh and Prakash Javadekar. This meeting was done through video conferencing. According to the sources, all the options for conducting the examination were placed before the Prime Minister. These options were prepared after long discussions with the state governments and the CBSE board.
Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal had demanded the cancellation of Class 12 exams. He had said that students should be assessed on the basis of past performance. Kejriwal said that parents are upset. They do not want the exam to be conducted without vaccination.
12 states wanted 3-4 subjects to be tested, time also reduced
The states had sent their suggestions to the central government regarding the 12th examination across the country. Maharashtra, Jharkhand, Kerala, Meghalaya, Arunachal, Tamil Nadu and Rajasthan also suggested pre-exam vaccines. Maharashtra also talked about online examination. UP, Jammu and Kashmir, Gujarat, Assam, Himachal, Chandigarh, Sikkim, Punjab, Andhra Pradesh, Telangana, Bihar and Odisha wanted only the core subjects to be tested and the exam time should be reduced. Exams should be held in the children’s own school.
Students wrote a letter to the Chief Justice
About 3 thousand students wrote a letter to Chief Justice NV Ramana about the examinations about a week ago. It was said, ‘CBSE’s decision to conduct physical exam amid Corona should be canceled. Direct the Supreme Court to decide the alternative method of assessment. Due to Kovid-19 in the country, many students have lost their family members. In such a situation, conducting physical examination at this time is not only a threat to the safety of millions of students and teachers, but also to their families.
