Maharashtra Government has decided to cancel the Std XIIth exams of the state board.
Announcing the same, Maharashtra School Education Minister Varsha Gaikwad said, "Our stand was always clear that given the pandemic situation, health and mental well-being of our children MUST be everybody's priority."
"The past year has been tough. Our students have had to adjust to a lot. But they have overcome all odds. A big thank you to all our teachers who have strived harder to educate students. As we move forward towards the next academic year, here's wishing everyone all the very best," the Minister stated.
"As we move ahead, I'd once again request the Centre to VACCINATE all teachers & examination staff on priority before we conduct offline board exams in future. Maharashtra has demanded that all examination staff be treated as "Frontline Workers". Stay safe, Stay Healthy," Ms Gaikwad added.
