Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) which is relatively new to the microblogging site Twitter, has taken the 'meme' road to connect with the students and help them out in handling exam-related stress. Since the CBSE board exams began today, the board has shared two memes on the themes of revision and punctuality.
One meme follows the popular 'fist bump baby' template and is about completing revision before the exams.
Another one is about reaching the exam venue on time.
Meanwhile, Prime Minister Narendra Modi tweeted his wishes for the 'Exam Warriors' ahead of the exam.
As the CBSE Class X and XII exams commence today, best wishes to all young Exam Warriors, their parents and teachers. I urge my young friends to appear for the exams in a happy and stress-free manner. Months of hardwork and preparation will surely lead to great things!— Narendra Modi (@narendramodi) February 15, 2020
Earlier, Sanjay Dhotre, the Minister of State for HRD, also tweeted his best wishes for students who would appear for annual board exams this year.
