Many students and parents have been demanding for cancellation of board exams amid fears of the COVID-19 pandemic. The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) and other state and central education boards had earlier cancelled exams for Class 10 but yet to make a decision for Class 12 students.
Petitions have been filed in the Supreme Court on the subject of Class 12 exams – one has sought cancellation of these exams and promotion on the basis of alternative methods while the other plea has argued exams must be conducted considering the future of students.
