Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal today raised concern over conducting of Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) board exams scheduled from May 4. The CM also appealed to centre to cancel the CBSE exams or to consider conducting exams online.

"Some alternative methods could be thought of. Children can be promoted this time on the basis of either an online method or internal assessment. But CBSE exams should be cancelled," he said at a press conference here.

"6 lakh children in Delhi are going to write CBSE exams. Nearly 1 lakh teachers will be a part of it. These can become major hotspots leading to large-scale spreading of Corona. Children's lives and health is very important to us. I request Centre to cancel CBSE exams," the CM added.

Notably, the Delhi government has already asked schools, colleges in the national capital to remain closed considering the Covid-19 surge. The education department last Friday notified that all offline academic activities for students of classes 9 to 12 in schools have been discontinued till further orders.

There is also a huge outcry from students to postpone the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) classes 10, 12 exams. Over one lakh petitions have been signed at change.org in demand of either cancellation or postponing the exams. Several politicians, actors also joined the chorus supporting the students' demand.
