Due to covid-19 curfew we are not stepping out from our house. Amid rising COVID19 cases, Tamil Nadu Government has ordered the closure of all schools. So the students are attending online classes from their home. There will be no Class 12 board exams this year, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said on Tuesday, ending weeks of anxiety among students and parents over the Covid situation in the country. “Class XII results will be made as per well-defined objective criteria in a time-bound manner,” the PM said.
PM Narendra Modi has declared the cancellation of class 12 board exams this year due to the pandemic situation. In a tweet, he wrote, “Government of India has decided to cancel the Class XII CBSE Board Exams. After extensive consultations, we have taken a decision that is student-friendly, one that safeguards the health as well as future of our youth.”
In a statement released after the Prime Minister’s meeting, the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) said, “It was also decided that like last year, in case some students desire to take the exams, such an option would be provided to them by CBSE, as and when the situation becomes conducive.”
During the meeting, PM Modi expressed appreciation that a student friendly decision has been reached after consulting all the stakeholders, the PMO statement said. He also thanked the states for providing feedback on this issue, it added.
Delhi chief minister quickly reacted to the news, saying it’s a big relief. “I am glad 12th exams have been cancelled. All of us were very worried abt the health of our children. A big relief,” Kejriwal said on Twitter.
