Gehlot took the decision in the cabinet meeting
10th and 12th board exams have also been canceled in Rajasthan. The Gehlot cabinet took this decision in the meeting on Wednesday. This time more than 21.58 lakh students had applied for both the board exams. In this, there are about 12 lakh students in 10th and about 9.50 lakh students in 12th.
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.
Decision also came in UP and Maharashtra
What was the suggestion of the states regarding the examination?
A few days ago, the states had sent their suggestions to the central government regarding the 12th examination. Of these, 12 states said that only 3-4 papers of short duration should be taken. 8 states including Delhi, Maharashtra, Jharkhand, Rajasthan said that all students should be given the vaccine before the examination or the examination should be cancelled. However, after the decision on CBSE, it is believed that most of the states will adopt the same pattern in their board exams as well, because the states had said the same thing while giving the suggestion.
