In an application on Change.org, he said, “The situation in India is worsening day by day. When there were fewer cases in the country, he canceled the remaining board exams and now plans to open schools when the cases are at their peak. We urge the Education Minister to cancel all the exams to be considered this year as students are already under a lot of pressure. Divya Garg, a 10th grade student, has been canceling tests for at least a month on Twitter and then requesting to review the situation based on the number of cases.
Another user tweeted that students have had enough problems with the epidemic so far. Classes go online so tests must also be online or students are promoted to the next class. In general, board exams begin in January and written exams begin in February and end in March. Tests have been delayed due to the epidemic and now these tests will be held in May-June.
According to a senior CBSE official, adequate arrangements have been made to ensure the safety of students and all Kovid-19 rules have been followed. The number of test centers has been increased to 40–50 per cent to ensure social distance. The board announced last week that if the student does not attend a clinical test because he or she has been infected by a family member, the school will re-test at the appropriate time. However, the officer did not comment on whether the exemption was granted even on written examination. On the other hand, CISCE chief executive and secretary, Gary Arathun, said the tests would be conducted in the stipulated time.
