The Prime Minister stressed that the health and safety of our students is of utmost importance and there would be no compromise on this aspect. He said that in today’s time, such exams cannot be the reason to put our youth at risk.
During a May 23 meeting, the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) proposed holding the exam between July 15 and August 26, PTI reported citing sources. It also put forth two options: regular exams in 19 major subjects at notified centres and shorter-duration exams at schools where the students are enrolled.
A majority of the states expressed their opinion in favour of holding the exam, Union Minister of Education Ramesh Pokhriyal had said following that meeting.
However, states like Maharashtra said the "non-examination route" must be examined while Delhi and Kerala suggested vaccinating the students ahead of the exams. Uttar Pradesh has cancelled the Class 10 exams and proposed to hold those for Class 12 in the second week of July
On May 31, a plea to cancel the CBSE and ICSE board exam was heard in the Supreme Court. The matter was adjourned to June 3 after the Centre sought time to take a decision.
