As per an india.com report, the petition filed by Advocate Mamta Sharma said, "Conducting Class 12 board examinations online or offline not feasible because of an unprecedented pandemic. Delay in the declaration of Class 12 results will hamper students taking admission to foreign universities. CBSE and CISCE must devise an object methodology to declare the results within the specified time else it will affect nearly 12 lakh students."
Incidentally, a high-level government meeting on conducting the CBSE Class 12 Board Exam 2021 and other board exams was held on May 23, 2021 and was attended by the Union Education Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank.
In the meeting, the states and the union territories were asked to send their written feedback on the same by May 25, 2021. A decision on the CBSE Class 12 Board Exam 2021 will be taken soon. As a matter of fact, when the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) postponed the CBSE Class 12 Board Exam 2021 last month, it stated that a decision on the same will be notified to the students after a thorough review of the situation on June 1, 2021.
