In India as well students are facing the same situation
Recently CBSE (Central Board of Secondary Education) has given a hint that it may clear class 12th students without any exam. As per sources, CBSE may allow the students of standard 12 to graduate early under a special marking scheme. However, the board will offer them the option to take the exams at a later date if they want to improve their performance.
According to the current situation, 19 states and UT’s have finished conducting their board exam for standard 12th students. These include Chhattisgarh, Bihar, Uttar Pradesh, Telangana, Kerela, Tamil Nadu, Karnataka, and Jharkhand.
As per government sources, due to the surge in COVID 19 cases in the country, it might increase the risk factors of exposing a lot of students to the virus. This is the reason that it is not feasible to conduct the CBSE exams from the 1st of July to the 15th of July. However, any further delay may cause these students the disadvantage of admission to higher education.
As states who are done with their exams will start with the admission process in colleges and universities leaving behind the CBSE students.
The boards is currently working on an evaluation method by which it will declare results for standard 12th students. The board has already discussed the plan with the HRD ministry and two meetings have already been done. Now students are waiting for a formal announcement which is expected to be next week.
