New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi chaired an important meeting regarding the prospect of Class 12 Board Examinations on Tuesday evening.



The meeting was attended by Union Ministers including Union Home Minister Amit Shah, Environment, Forest and Climate Change Minister Prakash Javadekar, Railways Minister Piyush Goyal, Textiles Minister Smriti Irani, Petroleum, Natural Gas and Steel Minister Dharmendra Pradhan, Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman, along with senior officials including Secretary of School Education and Higher Education.


Earlier today, official sources had informed ANI that PM Modi will be briefed on all possible options, as a result of the extensive discussions with all states and other stakeholders regarding the prospect of Class 12 Board Examinations.

Following the Centre's decision to hold the Class 12 board exams, some states went ahead and announced either the exam pattern or their tentative dates, while others, including Delhi, Punjab, and Jharkhand, voiced dissent.


During a May 23 meeting, the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) proposed holding the exam between July 15 and August 26, PTI reported citing sources. It also put forth two options: regular exams in 19 major subjects at notified centres and shorter-duration exams at schools where the students are enrolled.


A majority of the states expressed their opinion in favour of holding the exam, Union Minister of Education Ramesh Pokhriyal had said following that meeting.


However, states like Maharashtra said the "non-examination route" must be examined while Delhi and Kerala suggested vaccinating the students ahead of the exams. Uttar Pradesh has cancelled the Class 10 exams and proposed to hold those for Class 12 in the second week of July


On May 31, a plea to cancel the CBSE and ICSE board exam was heard in the Supreme Court. The matter was adjourned to June 3 after the Centre sought time to take a decision.
