After Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal appealed to the centre to cancel the CBSE (Central Board of Secondary Education) exams for 2021. The Centre has agreed to the demands and has cancelled Class 10 exams and postponed Class 12. PM Narendra Modi chaired the high-level committee meeting today.
"The situation will be reviewed on 1st June 2021 by the Board, and details will be shared subsequently. A notice of at least 15 days will be given before the start of the examinations: the official statement reads.
BSE class 10th exams are cancelled. Students will be evaluated on the basis of an objective criterion to be developed by the Board. Any candidate who is not satisfied with the marks allocated to him/her on this basis will be given an opportunity to sit in an exam as and when the conditions are conducive to hold the exams, the statement further read.
Kejriwal feared that the youth could get the worst hit with the number of rising cases in Delhi.
6 lakh children in Delhi are going to write CBSE exams. Nearly 1 lakh teachers will be a part of it. These can become major hotspots leading to large-scale spreading of Corona,” said Kejriwal in a tweet yesterday.
After the latest announcement, Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal tweeted "I am glad that the exams have been cancelled/postponed. This is a great relief for lakhs of students and their parents."
