Students wrote a letter to the Chief Justice
About 3 thousand students wrote a letter to Chief Justice NV Ramana about the examinations about a week ago. It was said, ‘CBSE’s decision to conduct physical exam amid Corona should be canceled. Direct the Supreme Court to decide the alternative method of assessment. Due to Kovid-19 in the country, many students have lost their family members. In such a situation, conducting physical examination at this time is not only a threat to the safety of millions of students and teachers, but also to their families.
