In the meeting there were discussions on conducting the CBSE Class 12 Board Exam 2021.
In the meeting, the states and the union territories were also asked to send their written feedback on the same by May 25, 2021.

He added, "The course of undertaking the limited examination with adequate safety measures will give our generation a sense of pride in their abilities and boost their confidence as opposed to getting a general 'pass' degree, as offered during the pandemic." The Union Education Minister also admitted that there is no denying that some of the students will have a difficult time due to COVID which will deny them the option to take the exams in ideal conditions.
