The decision to cancel the 12th board exams was taken by the government and the Prime Minister of the country, Narendra Modi shared his views on Wednesday and said that the decision, taken after extensive consultations and meetings is right and student-friendly.

The Centre announced the cancellation of the 12th board exams due to the COVID-19 situation in the country. Several states including Madhya Pradesh, Gujarat & Uttarakhand called off their board exams on Wednesday and many other states will take a call soon.

The decision to cancel the board exams was lauded by many in a series of tweets on Twitter and the PM responded to them by saying that the health and welfare of the students is their topmost priority.

He also elaborated by saying that this has been a difficult year for students as they couldn’t interact with one another and they were confined to their homes which resulted in spending very little to no time with their friends.

He replied to a tweet by saying, “As you said, in the current times, this was the best and most student-friendly decision.”

He also applauded the teachers for playing a supportive role in the pandemic and for ensuring the continuity of learning. He tweeted, “I would like to applaud all the teachers for supporting the students and ensuring that the education journey continues under the new normal.”
