There will be no Class 12 board exams this year, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said on June 1. With this decision ends weeks of anxiety among students & parents over the Covid-19 situation in the country. The decision was taken because of “uncertain conditions” due to Covid-19 & based on feedback from different stakeholders, said his office. “Students should not be forced to appear for exams in such a stressful situation,” a statement from the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) said. “The health and safety of our students is of utmost importance and there will be no compromise on this aspect," said the statement, quoting PM Modi. Both CBSE & CISCE Class 12 exams have been cancelled. CBSE will now take steps to compile the results of Class 12 students according to “well-defined objective criteria in a time-bound manner”, the PMO release said. Like last year, students who still want to take the exams will be given a chance when the situation improves, said the government.
