CBSE board exams 2021, which is being conducted for thousands of students across the country, are scheduled to begin from 4 May 2021. While the Central Board for Secondary Education has reiterated that the examinations will be conducted as per schedule, parents and students are now requesting the Indian Government to cancel or postpone board exams due to the rising number of COVID-19 cases.

When COVID-19 began in 2020, the remaining exams for class 10 and 12 students were either cancelled or postponed, which was when there were thousands of cases per day. But now we have reached a situation where the cases are increasing in lakhs per day, still the board is conducting offline exams. It's like we know what would happen if we do the wrong thing, but still we will do the wrong thing. And it's not just the children, if the child gets infected with covid it would not be limited to him, it will be passed on to dozens of other people maybe his/her family, friends etc. Which would just make the situation worse

And even after knowing that different variants of the virus makes them more strong, more immune than before, they are risking many lives. 

The government puts a stop to the celebration of almost all festivals which includes people gathering in large numbers; so why the exams? Even the government knows what would be the situation outside the exam halls when parents would come to drop off their children. Imagine even one of them has been infected, and even after knowing that the new mutant spreads like a forest fire, they are like "WE WILL CONDUCT OFFLINE EXAMS." Let us stand against it together.
