Certain requests also suggest that pending board exams should be cancelled. "In this critical situation we all are already depressed," wrote one student.

One major query that emerged from the hashtag is NIOS secondary (10th) and Senior Secondary (12th) exams. Students have requested the minister to either release the date sheet for NIOS 10th and 12th examinations or cancel the examinations altogether and pass all students.

Another user pointed out that online classes is not feasible for all students specially for students in primary classes.
"With soft copies of textbooks, it becomes difficult to refer online books and class at the same time for the books," wrote the user.
CA students have also added in their queries. One user asked if public gatherings are banned, then how will ICAI conduct examinations.
Respected sir what about our CA exams which are going to be held in the month of June.— Ankit Jain (@nkitjainca) April 27, 2020
As public gatherings are banned in many places how our institute conduct examination as mostly a red zone areas have centres for examination.#icai#EducationMinisterGoesLive@DrRPNishank pic.twitter.com/3Hz5vGKnLv
#EducationMinisterGoesLive #icai sir since almost all the exams are either postponed or cancelled, we can't take risk and write our CA exams too. We sense danger and our minds can't focus on 2 wars at the same time. For 20 days because of exams already CA loses his immunity. Pls— Mahesh babu (@Maheshcastudent) April 27, 2020
