CBSE Class 10/12 Updates:
Prime Minister Narendra Modi has scheduled a meeting with the Union Education Minister Ramesh Pokkriyal ‘Nishank’, Secretary and other important officials today at 12 noon to discuss the issue of CBSE board exams for Classes 10 and 12 students.
Amid rising coronavirus cases in the country, CBSE and several other state boards have already either cancelled or postponed respective board exams and now several school teachers are of the view that RT-PCR tests must be made mandatory for students before restarting Class 12 practical exams to curb the spread of COVID-19.
It is to be noted that many CBSE schools across the country had started their practical tests from April 1 but the schools were forced to put the CBSE Class 12 practical exams on hold as many states went into a ‘strict restriction’ mode.
A leading national daily reported that the teachers have decided to give a letter making RT-PCR tests mandatory for students to both the Nagpur Municipal Corporation and the district collectorate. The teachers noted that it is likely that both students and teachers can be asymptomatic and it could be a big health risk for all stakeholders.
