New Delhi, 1st June : Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Tuesday said the Centre should consider cancelling the pending class 12th board exams and assess students on the basis of their past performances. Mr Kejriwal’s appeal came prior to a meeting of Prime Minister Narendra Modi scheduled for today evening. According to Government of India sources, Pm Modi will be briefed about all the developments that have emerged as a result of discussions with states and education stakeholders, and about the possible routes for Class 12 students.
Mr Kejriwal in his tweet said children are afraid of going for exams without vaccination. The National Capital Government is one among the few who have opposed the idea of holding board exams amid COVID-19.
“Children and parents are worried about the 12th examination. They want that without vaccination, 12th examination should not be held,” the Delhi Chief Minister tweeted in Hindi.
“I appeal to the central government that the 12th examination be cancelled. They should be assessed on the basis of past performance,” he added.
