    Quote on CBSE and CISCE Class 12 2021 exams being cancelled – Dr Mona Lisa Bal, Chairperson, KiiT International School

    Published on June 2, 2021

    “Following multiple requests from students all over the country, our Hon’ble PM’s decision to cancel the CBSE Class 12 Exams and the CISCE board following suit, is a long-awaited and much needed step.  With the alarming rise in COVID positive cases across the country, cancellation of the exams has brought relief to both students and their guardians alike. Especially since the second wave has seen the youth getting affected more. Conducting a crucial examination amidst a pandemic could have posed several challenges for the schools. Moreover, the impending third wave is expected to affect more youth, with the changing nature of the Virus. Hence, this decision is an absolute need of the hour as the health and safety of our children is of the utmost importance. A well-defined objective criterion is the best possible solution for compiling of the results of one of most critical examinations of a student’s career. Schools will be waiting for the detailed criteria expected to be released by the Board soon as it will put to rest speculations. Furthermore, keeping the option of availing written tests open, at a later date, for those unhappy with these results also provides every student with an equal opportunity. Pupils can use all their preparation and time to focus on the various national level competitive examinations which will help shape their career.” – Dr Mona Lisa Bal, Chairperson, KiiT International School.
