Madhya Pradesh Board of Secondary Education (MPBSE) has joined the list of states to have cancelled the class 12 board exams. The MPBSE’s decision is in line with that opted by the central government who cancelled exams for both CBSE and CISCE on Tuesday. The order for cancelation came after a meeting between Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Defence Minister Rajnath Singh, I&B Minister Prakash Javadekar among others.
“MP Higher Secondary Board not to conduct 12th examination this year due to Corona,” an official notice from MPBSE said. Earlier, the Madhya Pradesh Board had announced that it will go ahead with the exams and will announce the dates for the then postponed class 12 exams in the first week of June.
State education minister Inder Singh Parmar had said after a nationwide consultancy meeting with Rajnath Singh had said that t the health of the students and teachers was the “top priority” of the state government. During the high-level meeting, Parmar had raised the issue of vaccination before the examination, he had said that teachers and other staff on exam duty should be vaccinated on priority.
That meeting had remained inconclusive and the proposals were taken to PM Modi on Tuesday when he canceled the class 12 exams for central boards stating that “anxiety of parents and students should be put to an end”. He had also asked all stakeholders to be sensitive towards students. Now, one after the other, state boards are also canceling their exams. A similar trend took place for class 10 students when most states followed decision of CBSE and cancelled class 10 exams.
