New Delhi: The NCR Parents Association on Tuesday wrote a letter to Education Minister requesting for cancellation of offline exams for Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) class XII private students and also requested to declare results by July 31 along with regular students.
President of the NCR Parents Association Sukhpal Singh Toor wrote the letter to request for cancellation of class XII exams for private/patrachar/compartment candidates. He wrote on Twitter, “Representation on behalf of CBSE 12th pvt students submitted with @EduMinOfIndia today. Officer in charge said that they are aware of issue & assured to get back ASAP. (sic)”
“We request for cancellation of exams and declaration of results by July 31 along with the regular students. They might miss abroad studies, university/college admission and may even miss competitive exams. Foreign universities and many other courses don't come under UGC,” he said.
“We visited the Ministry of Education. The minister was unavailable. One of the officials said that they will find a solution within four to five days,” he added.
The students informed that they had also written an e-mail to Examination Controller (CBSE) to confirm about the current status of exams for private candidates.
“If the result will be declared late, then my daughter will lose one year. And it’s not for my daughter, thousands of students are suffering from this problem. We tried to reach CBSE and Manish Sisodia but it is very hard to approach them. Now we have written a letter to the Education Minister. We hope that they will find a solution as soon as possible,” said Jayshree Sharma, one of the petitioners.
