The centre on Tuesday cancelled CBSE (Central Board of Secondary Education) class XII board exams due to the uncertain scenario of the Covid-19.
During the review meeting of the Class XII board exams of CBSE, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said that the student’s health and safety are of utmost importance and cannot be compromised.
In the coming days, CBSE will take a step to arrange the results of the Class XII students in a time-bound manner.
“All the stakeholders should show sensitivity towards students,” says PM Modi.
He also directed the officials to ensure the results are prepared per well-defined criteria fairly and in a time-bound manner.
However, like last year if some students want to take the exams, such an option will also be provided by the CBSE, as when the situation becomes favourable.
PM Modi also said that a student-friendly decision had been reached after consulting all the stakeholders across the country. He also appreciated the states for providing feedback on the issue.
This meeting was attended by the Union Minister of Home, Finance Defence, Information and Broadcasting, Commerce, Secretary to PM and Secretaries of School Education and Higher Education Departments and other officials.
Last month, the Defence Minister also chaired a meeting where Education Ministers of States attended. Various options for the CBSE examinations were discussed, and feedback was obtained from the States and UT’s.
