BHOPAL: The decision taken by CBSE cancelling exams for class 12 has brought relief to about 70,000 students from 1400 CBSE affiliated schools across the state. †The students of class 12 were under anxiety for a long time with the decision pending at the highest level. Several students suffered depression as well. Regional officer of CBSE Board, Bhopal, Meenu Joshi said that about 70,000 students were about to appear for class 12 exams this year. There are over 1400 CBSE affiliated schools in Madhya Pradesh. An estimated 5000 students were expected to take the exams from Bhopal only.
MP Board likely to follow suit
The Madhya Pradesh Board of Secondary Education (MPBSE) is likely to follow suit after the decision taken by the CBSE. Earlier, the state school education minister Inder Singh Parmar had said that they were waiting for the CBSE to take decision. ìWe are waiting for the CBSE to decide on class 12 exams. We will decide accordingly,î Parmar had said, a week ago. The state education board follows the CBSE closely. It had adopted the formula made by the CBSE for evaluating students of class 10. It is highly likely that even the MP Board will follow suit and adopt the same formula for evaluation of class 12 students as done by the CBSE.†
