The centre has put two options before states – Class 12 board exams for only objective-type questions for a short period of time, or exams only for major subjects.
While states like Karnataka and Assam are in favour of conducting exams, Delhi and Jharkhand are against the idea of exams amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia, Samajwadi Party president Akhilesh Yadav had earlier said the centre must vaccinate students for COVID-19, before calling them for physical exams.
Students’ bodies, including the RSS-affiliated ABVP, have asked for remote proctored online exams for the safety of students.
Apart from boards, the centre is also expected to make announcements on entrance exams like JEE and NEET. Two sessions of the JEE Main and the JEE Advanced have already been postponed.
