Delhi: On Tuesday, based on the meeting held by the Ministry of Education and the states on 23 May, the states were to give their suggestions. The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has proposed to conduct examinations from July 15 to August 26 and declare the results in September.
Most of the states of the country have opted for the second proposal of the Ministry of Education regarding the 12th board examinations. States have sent their suggestions to the central government on Tuesday for conducting board examinations. States have opted for the second proposal i.e. the 90-minute exam.Two to three other states, including Delhi, Maharashtra, have demanded a vaccine before the examination. While some states want to take the examination of core subjects only due to further admission in medical, engineering and general degree programs. They want to prepare the result of the 12th board examination from the state examination itself. Because such students will face problems from higher education to job due to not taking the exam.
The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has proposed to conduct examinations from July 15 to August 26 and declare the results in September. The board has also proposed two options. Among these, there are options to conduct regular examinations at the notified centers for 19 major subjects or for short-term examinations in the schools where students are studying. According to sources, Himachal Pradesh, Kerala, Bihar and Karnataka have also advocated another option. Kerala also raised the subject of vaccination in the meeting.
At the same time, the education minister of Maharashtra had said after the meeting that the state is still in favor of the idea of conducting an assessment without conducting the examination. The Punjab government has also opted for the second option. However, he reiterated that students should be given the Kovid vaccine before the exam. Punjab Education Minister Vijay Indra Singla told the Center on Tuesday that students of class 12 should be vaccinated before deciding to conduct board exams.
