CBSE Board Exams 2021: Here’s Why Students Are Requesting Authorities to Cancel 12th Exams

CBSE board exams 2021 should be cancelled for students of 12th standard like it was for students of 10th standard say parents and examinees

CBSE board exams 2021 should be cancelled say students yet again on social media platforms. As the COVID-19 situation in the country is yet to improve, parents and students have been requesting authorities to either cancel exams or conduct them through alternate means. Students have been trending #cancel12thboardexams2021 from the past three days, and it has received over one million tweets so far.

The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has informed that a decision with regard to conduction CBSE board exams 2021 for 12th standard students will be taken in June after revisiting the COVID-19 situation in the country. The board also recently announced for 10th students will be evaluated and results will be declared by 20 June. This development has led to students questioning as to why 12th standard results also cannot be declared in a similar manner.

Why CBSE Board Exams 2021 Must be Cancelled According to 12th Standard Students

Apart from not wanting to risk their lives amidst the ongoing pandemic, students have been requesting authorities to cancel examinations for the following reasons:

  • It is not possible to predict when the pandemic is going to attend. This uncertainty is causing students undue anxiety and pandemic.
  • Sessions were held online throughout the year, and according to students online classes alone are not sufficient to give offline examinations.
  • There were no coaching centres due to the COVID-19 pandemic, which was a major drawback as per students.
  • Holding the examinations in June 2021 means a delay in examinations. This will lead to further delay in seeking admissions in institutions for higher studies.
  • Alternative modes of examination need to be explored, and the pandemic may be the right time to implement the same.

However, authorities are yet to respond to the plea of students and parents. As of now, the board has maintained that a decision with regard to the CBSE board exams 2021 will be taken in June.

    Hi..I’m a 17 year old student studying at cbse and I’d like to share my account of this situation..
    The first time boards was postponed back in March there were only 17k daily cases and now at 400k daily cases these people want to hold the exams.what changed? Was the first time just a PR stunt? Or are our lives just insignificant now. This blatant falsehood is very sad..
    relatives of mine are passing away everyday..it really takes a toll on a person. This feeling of helplessness..of knowing that tomorrow I could be infected..I could be the reason my grandparents might die. I’m a 17 year old kid..I shouldn’t have to go through this..I don’t need this on my conscience..
    Oh and I’m not even started about the implications this very self centered decision from cbse has on my future. I had received my conditional offer from my dream university abroad but because cbse keeps postponing boards I won’t be able to send my final results on time so my family’s lifelong hope for one of us to get into a university abroad is already broken..this is so stressful..nothings in my control anymore I missed the last year of my school and my graduation is cancelled because of this pandemic which is literally taking people’s lives and I understand that my problems are irrelevant over the safety of the people of my country but..if I can’t go to my own graduation,if I had to spend my whole final year of my school at home 😢..then sitting in a room filled with atleast 800 kids which affectively creates a deathbox shouldn’t allowed either.
    Cbses arrogance has made them a borderline unethical institution
