300 Students Writes to CJI to cancel 12th Board Exam

Supreme Court

In view of the widespread interest of students in the midst of the Covid epidemic, a Central Board like CBSE (Central Board of Secondary Education) stands strongly in favor of conducting the examination. On the other hand, around 300 students have sent a letter to the Supreme Court Chief Justice NV Ramana to cancel the examination to class XII of CBSE. The students have asked the Supreme Court to direct the government to provide an alternative assessment scheme for them.

Keeping in view the future of children, it was decided in the high-level meeting convened by Defense Minister Rajnath Singh on Sunday that the 12th board examinations will not be canceled. Most of the states except Delhi have also suggested to conduct 12th board examinations. The central government has said that it will soon eliminate the confusion arising among the students and parents about the examinations. A decision will be taken on the exam on or before June 1 and the exam date will be released.

States like Delhi and Maharashtra, who stand in favor of not taking the Class XII board exams, may see some benefit from this decision, but in the future it may pose many challenges for children. In particular, there can be problems in the admission of reputed higher educational institutions and central universities with central assistance, where they can be undermined by the students who take the exam.

Opinions on the options for taking the exam in a high-level meeting differed. There was a long discussion on the options for the examination in this meeting held with the states to conduct 12th board examinations. It was agreed to have a self-center for the examinations. Also, there was talk of taking the examinations in less than three hours i.e. one and a half hours. During this time, suggestions were made to keep the question paper multiple choice or to conduct examination of some major subjects only.

During this time it was also suggested that the subjects of the examination be selected only by asking the students. In other subjects, marks should be given on the basis of assessment of their performance. Union Education Minister Nishank has asked all the states to give a detailed opinion in this regard by 25 May. It is believed that after the opinion of the states, the full report will be placed before the Prime Minister. It is believed that the states will be allowed to choose the option based on their convenience.
