We all know the current covid situation in India. With over 350k+ cases being reported daily, the Second wave of Covid-19 has our country very hard. Lockdowns are being imposed in various parts of the country but the cases are still on the rise. 

Families who have lost their loved ones are unable to find crematoriums to do the last rites. There are long lines observed near every crematorium but even in this situation, The Central Board for Secondary Education(CBSE) is forcing millions of students to sit in offline exams. The examinations for classes upto 11 have been cancelled and only 12th Class is left.

The 2020-2021 batch has had the longest academic session till date with a time period of 15 months and still counting. During whole of 2020, we attended online classes and did not have even a single offline class. When there was a decline in cases, it was decided that Practicals for this session shall be conducted in offline mode. And to prepare us for the same, we were called in our schools from January 2021 and we students were promised of our safety and that all Covid-19 Guidelines will be followed which was just a hoax. We were called and we only learnt about Practicals and nothing else. There was not a single theory class which was held to help us. Luckily, i did not bring Covid home with me and was safe but I'd like to inform that no COVID-19 GUIDELINES WAS FOLLOWED, students were sharing food, no social distancing followed and no proper mask check was there. 

No wonder why #cancel12thboardexams2021 is on the trend on social media for a couple of days now.

Now, all I wanna say is that if you can't make a 100 students follow the guidelines and that too at school level then how will you manage millions of students at various centers ? WHO SHALL BE HELD RESPONSIBLE IF A STUDENT OR HIS/HER FAMILY MEMBER(S) DIES FROM COVID BECAUSE HE/SHE WENT FOR EXAM AND BROUGHT COVID ALONG WITH HIM/HER TO HIS/HER HOME ? WHAT IS THE FAULT OF THESE STUDENTS OR THEIR FAMILIES ?

AND MOST IMPORTANTLY :

Are EXAMS MORE IMPORTANT THAN LIFE ? 

I would like to request the authorities to cancel the exams for Class 12th 2020-2021 batch and not to postpone it as further postponement will lead to stress and tension once again.
