The centre on Tuesday decided to cancel the CBSE class 12 board examinations. The crucial decision was made after Prime Minister Narendra Modi chaired a review meeting regarding the class 12 board exams. 

The government’s decision brought a huge sigh of relief among students who are going through a dilemma over long to appear or not to appear in the class 12 exam.

Many students, however, were not happy with the government’s decision, as they think, “It is true that the decision has been taken keeping in mind the safety of students but instead of cancellation, students should have been vaccinated. Thereafter they could have given the exams. This way all the preparation of the previous year would have paid off.”

In this perspective, parents, students, teachers and school management of Global Indian International School have shared their views to Hummingbird News.

“Class XII is a crucial milestone in students’ academic journey, as it forms a nodal point that shapes their career choices and vocational path. In an ideal scenario, the exams would have been conducted, however under the extraordinary circumstances, safety and wellbeing of students supersedes all other considerations.

We are in full agreement with Govt.’s timely decision of cancelling Class XII examinations, thereby ending the uncertainty and anxiety prevailing in the minds of the students preparing for the exams. The presence of Hon’ble PM in the meeting, epitomises the importance that he associates with the wellbeing of the youth, who shall be the torch bearers of the country tomorrow.

It is important to note that an option has been provided to students who wish to appear for the exams at a later date, when the situation becomes conducive for conduct of exams. Additionally, a well-defined, time bound criterion, will be ensured for assessment. Admission in undergraduate courses, across India and internationally, are dependent on Class XII results, therefore, the sooner these details are announced, better it would be for the students, their parents, and the entire academic community. We wish all Class XII students the very best for their future. In these tough times, it is crucial to remain resilient and optimistic.” said Rajiv Bansal, Director-Operations – Global Indian International School (GIIS), India.

“I would like to thank the Union Government for taking a decision to not hold the 12th board examination amidst the pandemic. I am glad that our Prime Minister believes that safeguarding our health is essential. It is relieving to know that we don’t have to go through the stressful situation of appearing physically for the examination not knowing what we might be exposed to. However, I am anxious to know about my final CBSE results. Our 12th examination is a determining factor for our future, so I hope Universities are considerate and will look at alternative and comprehensive ways of evaluating basis our merit during admission procedure” Says Aditya Chandra, XII (Science), Global Indian International School (GIIS) Noida.

“These have been turbulent times for the entire academic community. Students and parents have been under tremendous pressure and the uncertainty of examination timeline, format, syllabus etc. have kept them anxious and concerned. The decision of examination cancelation puts an end to the impending wait but might also create an environment of vagueness. Class 12th results are the basis of a student’s future career decision and are seen as a qualifying criterion by numerous Universities. Detailed clarity on the scheme of marking and result creation will help students and teachers understand how the mechanics would play out. These details will also help students make an appropriate career decision and choose their future path. Having said that, safety and wellbeing of all students is paramount and as we battle this deadly pandemic, it is imperative to prioritize health and life over anything else” says Ms. Sulekha Sharma, PGT-English, Global Indian International School (GIIS) Noida.
