CBSE class 12 exam 2021: Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi chaired a high-level meeting on Tuesday and made a decision to cancel CBSE class 12 exams 2021.
The Central Government cancelled the CBSE Class 12 board exams for 2021 on Tuesday, June 1st at the high-level meeting led by PM Modi, Home Minister Amit Shah, Minister of Environment, Forest & Climate Change; Information & Broadcasting; & Heavy Industries & Public Enterprises Prakash Javadekar and Railway Minister Piyush Goyal.
It was determined that the CBSE would take initiatives to compile the results of Class 12 pupils as “well defined objective criteria” in a time-bound manner. It was also decided that in case some students show interest to take the exams, such an option would be provided to them by CBSE.
After the cancellation of the CBSE Class 12 exam, the Council for the Indian School Certificate Examinations (CISCE) has decided to cancel its Class 12 or ISC Board Exams 2021, due to the Covid-19 pandemic across the country. The alternate criterion for the evaluation would be announced soon by the respective authority.
The cancellation of Class 12 CBSE board exams was made “in the benefit of students,” said Prime Minister Narendra Modi. PM Modi has also directed officials to ensure that the Class 12 results are prepared “in a fair and timely manner” based on “well-defined criteria.” The health and safety of our students are of utmost importance and there would be no compromise on this aspect, and in today’s time, such examinations cannot be the reason to put our youth at risk” PM added.
