After the cancellation of CBSE 12th examination by the central government, now the 10th and 12th board examinations have been canceled in Rajasthan as well. This decision was taken on Wednesday after brainstorming in the Gehlot cabinet meeting. This time 21 lakh 60 thousand 217 students had applied for both the board exams.
12 lakh 14 thousand 512 are the candidates who have applied for the 10th class examination. 1763 students applied for the tenth deaf and dumb examination. 48 thousand 846 candidates applied for the 10th Vocational Examination. 8355 students applied for the entrance exam. A total of 8 lakh 82 thousand 112 candidates applied for the 12th examination. For the 12th Deaf and Deaf examination, 809 students have applied and for the Senior Upadhyaya examinations, 3823 candidates have applied.
Giving information after the meeting, Education Minister Govind Singh Dotasara said that in view of Corona, the 10th and 12th examinations should not be conducted. After the cancellation of board examinations, other options were also discussed in the meeting to prepare the results. However, it is not yet clear whether the board will prepare the results of the students on some basis. Earlier, Congress General Secretary Priyanka Gandhi had suggested the state governments to postpone the board examinations. After the suggestion of Priyanka Gandhi, it was believed that the Gehlot government can take a decision accordingly.
In view of the apprehensions of the third wave of Corona, it has been decided to cancel the class 10 and 12 board examinations of Rajasthan Board of Secondary Education in the meeting of Rajasthan Council of Ministers today in the interest of students.
