The CBSE Class 12 Board exams were cancelled on Tuesday. The move follows a high-level meeting chaired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, earlier today.

“The decision to cancel the exams was taken in the interest of the students,” PM Modi said adding that the health and safety of students is of utmost importance and that it would not be compromised under any circumstance.

“Anxiety among students, parents, teachers must come to an end. Students should not be forced to appear for exams under such stressful situations,” Modi added.

The CBSE class 12 results will be announced as per well-defined objective criteria in a time-bound manner, the Centre said today. 

In case some students desire to take exams, option would be provided to them by CBSE once situation becomes conducive, according to the Govt.
