Decision taken prioritising the demands from parents and students
The Jharkhand government has cancelled the Class X and XII board exams in view of the COVID-19 crisis in the state.
Chief minister Hemant Soren said that the decision was taken considering the demands of parents and students.
Earlier, the Jharkhand Academic Council (JAC) had clarified that social media posts on the cancellation of the exams were fake. At that time, the council had said that the decision regarding the exams was yet to be taken.
However, several states have cancelled their board exams after the CBSE and CISCE decided to cancel theirs.
On June 1, Prime Minister Narendra Modi had chaired a meeting to announce the cancellation of the CBSE Class XII board exams. He said the health and safety of students is of prime importance, and stakeholders had been urged to not compromise on these aspects.
