Students want board exams cancelled, CBSE says will go ahead

Apr 08, 2021 14:47 IST | By Editorji News Desk

Amid a surge in Covid-19 cases, over one lakh students of classes 10 and 12 have signed petitions urging the government to either cancel board exams scheduled to be held in May or conduct them in online mode.

The hashtag "cancelboardexams2021" has been trending on Twitter for the past two days.

However, both the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) and Council for the Indian School Certificate Examinations (CISCE) have said that the exams will be conducted as per the schedule.

The boards have assured that adequate safety arrangements are being made for students and all Covid-19 guidelines will be followed during the exams.
