CBSE Exams cancelled! SC issues the verdict to cancel both 10th and 12th exams

By : |June 25, 2020 0

The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) on Thursday, June 25 (that is today) informed the Supreme Court about its decision on the cancellation of the pending board examination for class 10 and 12. After that, the Supreme court issued a verdict cancelling all 10th and 12th exams. The court made this suggestion in response to a plea from a group of parents, who have asked for cancellation of the remaining board exams citing the Covid-19 pandemic.

Supreme Court bench led by J AM Khanwilkar heard the plea seeking cancellation of remaining CBSE exams due to COVID19. Also, the ICSE Board has, too, shared that it would broadly follow the decision taken by CBSE in the matter. SC had last week asked CBSE to consider scrapping the class 10 and Class 12 board exams in view of the growing cases of coronavirus infections in the country.

In their plea, the parents said that conducting examinations across over 15,000 centres at this stage would unnecessarily expose children to the risk of contracting Covid-19. It also asked the board to allot marks to students for the remaining papers on the basis of their internal assessment and performance in practicals and examinations they took in March.

After this, the news for JEE and NEET 2020, is highly expected. For that, PMK Leader told TimesNow that if CBSE can be cancelled, then so can be NEET and JEE. Because both of the exams were supposed to happen with 10 days gap. He also said that there is no chance of any miracle taking control of coronavirus transmission in the interim. Students’ fears and frustrations are unlikely to quit. So, the solution is to cancel the NEET and JEE exam.

NEET Examination has been scheduled to be conducted on July 26, 2020, across the country, while JEE Mains is supposed to happen from July 18 to July 23. With the upsurge of virus patients in the country, it is difficult to conduct the examination with social distancing norms. However, students are now demanding for the exams to be postponed further and have taken to twitter with #NoExamsinCOVID.
