Earlier, after HRD minister announced the dates for the exams, several queries were raised by people about the safety of students.
Respected sir, how can parent “ensure” that their child is not sick? And if he / she is, how will they write? None of the norms you’ve mentioned guarantee 100% safety. One cough in the exam hall is sufficient to mentally scare a student. Please reconsider your decision.

Some also raised questions which force a person to think – Are exams more important for our country than safety of students?
Really disappointed with the Indian Education system. Putting the lives of students at stake for the sake of exams. Students are suffering and worried about safety but the concern of the government and all institutions is to ensure exams are conducted no matter what. #ICAI #CBSE
