CBSE Class 12 Board Exams will be cancelled in 2021.
COVID-19 has affected all, and the pandemic has also affected education. The (CBSE) has cancelled and postponed the Class 10 and 12 Board exams, accordingly, due to an increase in coronavirus COVID-19 cases across the nation. The CBSE has so far suspended the Class 10 exams for 2021 and has delayed the Class 12 exams until the coronavirus situation is under control.
Many state boards, including the UP Board, Gujarat, and others, quickly postponed or cancelled exams. In response to the increasing coronavirus cases, the Indian School Certificate Examinations declared the postponement of Class 10 ICSE and Class 12 ISC board examinations.
Quite few education analysts claim that cancelling the CBSE Class 12 Board Exams in 2021 is a bad idea. The output of students who wish to apply for different entrance exams is based on their grades in Class 12 exams. According to the analysts, ranking students merely on the basis of performance appraisals is not wise because it would be unfair to some students.
Instead of cancelling the Class 12 tests, it is essential to ask the right questions and devise a new strategy for administering the exams. Teachers and students have been doing an excellent job since the lockdown was revealed last year. However, cancelling the exam completely is not an option.
The exams and, as a result, the results were significantly delayed. Students were able to begin their higher education as late as November, rather than the normal July or August start date. Not only are new graduates this year out of college, but some students who passed 12th class last year are also out because they did not receive a timely decision on their admission.
In these unforeseen times, there is an urgent need for alternative options, much like there was when the pandemic caused a similar problem and schedules got out of control.
