Jharkhand Class 12 Exams
On Sunday, May 23, Jharkhand Chief Minister Hemant Soren said conducting the Class 12 board exams in the state would not be appropriate in the wake of the present Covid situation.
"If the suggestions received from the stakeholders are considered, there is a consensus on postponement of the examination... People feel that maintaining social distance will not be possible if the exams are conducted and children can get infected..." Mr Soren said after participating in a meeting convened by the Centre on the Class 12 board exams.
Many students and their families are going though mental stress, while several children have lost near and dear ones, he said, adding, conducting the examinations under such circumstances would be inappropriate.
