CBSE Class 12 students are worried about their upcoming CBSE Board Exams 2021 amid the ongoing surge in COVID-19 cases in the country.
CBSE has cancelled Class 10 board examinations and postponed Class 12 board exams. As daily COVID-19 cases have not declined since the CBSE's initial announcement, students are now demanding the board to cancel CBSE Class 12 board exams.
The decision on the revised dates for the Class 12 board exam 2021 will be taken after reviewing the COVID-19 situation in the country on June 1, announced Education Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank. The Class 12 board exams were originally scheduled to begin from May 4, 2021.
Thousands of candidates have poured onto social media platform Twitter, requesting the CBSE and the government to cancel Class 12 board exams 2021 as the COVID-19 situation has not improved.
The hashtag '#cancel12thboardexams2021', along with related hashtags, has been trending on Twitter for the past couple of days. Over a million tweets have been posted with this hashtag.
Here is a collection of tweets from students demanding that CBSE Class 12 board exams be cancelled:
