Amid the demand to cancel the CBSE Term 2 exams, students have now requested the Board to conduct the Class 10 and Class 12 exams at their home centres due to the rise in Covid-19 cases.
Several students and parents have expressed their concerns over the alleged lack of devotion to Covid-19 guidelines in schools and said CBSE should conduct the exams at home centres by taking into account students’ safety.
There is a spike in covid-19 cases in the past few days. Students travelling to a different exam centre in such conditions would increase the risk of getting infected. Parents are also concerned about the safety of their children. Students are also requesting the authorities to provide them an option to change the exam centre for CBSE 10th & 12th Term 2 2021-22 board exams. Also, there were some private schools who had urged CBSE to reduce the weightage of the term 1 exam alleging unfair means being done by some schools while marking their students.
All these issues, along with the safety concerns of students and teachers, are prompting students and parents to demand the conduct of exams at home centres.
