CBSE Board 2021: Will the 12th exams be of 30 minutes? Know the truth of viral claim- Amidst the outbreak of Corona epidemic across the country, speculation about conducting board examinations is not diminishing. It is believed that the CBSE Board will conduct the 12th examinations for the session 2021. According to the latest information, the time and dates of the examinations can be announced by June 1.
Let us tell you that in a viral news, sources are claiming that the candidates will be given 30 minutes to solve the question papers of all the major subjects in the examinations. Earlier it was being said that the exam time can be reduced from three hours to one and a half hours. So tell that no decision has been taken in this regard. Therefore, all these claims are misleading. Officially detailed information about the examinations will be shared by Union Education Minister Dr. Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank on June 1, 2021.
Explain that amidst increasing cases of corona, there is a continuous demand for cancellation of examinations across the country. Parents and students are constantly urging for an alternative assessment plan through social media. The matter has also reached the Supreme Court. While around 300 students have also written to the Chief Justice demanding cancellation of the examinations and alternative assessment.
Meanwhile, the Central Board of Secondary Education i.e. CBSE is constantly brainstorming with the central government and the states regarding the 12th exams. A high-level meeting of the Union Group of Ministers was held under the chairmanship of Defense Minister Rajnath Singh on Sunday, 23 May, for the conduct of the 12th examinations. At that meeting, suggestions were sought from the states in writing.
In response to this, by Tuesday evening of May 25, most of the states and Union Territories have sent their suggestions to the Union Ministry of Education regarding their planning and conduct of examinations. According to the information, most of the states have given consent to conduct the examinations, but they have also kept many types of conditions.
Education ministers and board secretaries of these states believe that the 12th examination is very important. Therefore, there should be examinations, but only some important subjects should be conducted and they should be completed in a limited period. For example, the three-hour examination should be conducted within one and a half hours. All the candidates, teachers and all other employees should be vaccinated before the commencement of the examination and only selected and required major subjects can be conducted in each subject.
It is believed that the Union Ministerial Group may have a high-level meeting with the Prime Minister on Sunday, May 30, with the suggestions received for the examinations. It is possible that a final decision will be taken in this. Which can be announced on June 01. Union Education Minister Dr. Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank himself can announce the dates of examinations. Let me tell you that on Sunday, May 30, Prime Minister Narendra Medi is also going to talk about the mind. During this time, they too can put their views in front of the country regarding the examinations.
