The day by day rising the cases of COVID-19 cases across the nation, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has requested the Centre to consider to cancel the board exams of class 10 th and 12 th . 6 lakh children in Delhi are going to write CBSE exams. Nearly one lakh teachers will be a part of it. These can become major hotspots leading to the large-scale spreading of Corona. Children's lives and health is very important to us. I request Centre to cancel CBSE exams,” Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said.
Some alternative methods could be thought of. Children can be promoted this time on the basis of either an online method or internal assessment. But CBSE exams should be cancelled," Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal added.
Lately, the Directorate of Education (DoE) said that class 9th to 12th will not be called to school for classes or exams. Delhi Disaster Management Authority has issued directions that schools will not be reopened for any other academic or non-academic activities.
CBSE Class 10 and Class 12 board exams are scheduled to be held in May. Fearing the deadly coronavirus, students across the nation have been demanding postponement of the CBSE board exams for a long time now. Over one lakh students have signed a petition on change .org demanding that the CBSE be cancelled. Students have requested the Education Ministry to cancel “all examinations” as students are “already under a lot of stress”.
Lakhs of students and parents have also taken to Twitter asking for cancellation or postponement of board exams.
However, both the Central Board of Secondary Education and Council for the Indian School Certificate Examinations have not taken any decision in this regard yet. The CM of Delhi is concern about the students as well as for the teachers because corona cases is increasing day by day.
