#CancelAssamBoardExams

 
Thousands of Students of High School Leaving Certificate (HSLC) and Higher Secondary (HS) final year of Assam on Sunday (June 6) started a campaign on the microblogging site Twitter, demanding cancellation of HSLC and HS board exams.
 

Stating that the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) and many state boards have cancelled this year’s exams amid the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, students and student bodies of Assam have asked the state government to take similar decisions.
Here's what they are saying: "Students are the future of our state, our country. If they fall prey to the deadly virus #COVID19, and lose their lives, how can we develop our state? Our state has no future without the students. Cancel SEBA/AHSEC exams immediately!" NSUI Assam tweeted with #CancelAssamBoardExams.
"The delay in the decision-making process is also causing mental distress to the students,who are facing health issues alongwith their parents due to #COVID19. Cancel AHSEC/SEBA exams immediately otherwise activists of @NSUIAssam will be on streets to protest," tweeted NSUI National General Secretary Anushesh Sharma.

Earlier, the Assam Education Minister Ranoj Pegu on Saturday said that the HSLC and HS examinations will be held after the COVID situation improves in the state. He said that if COVID-19 cases reduce to 1%, the examination will be conducted. 
 
While addressing a press conference, Pegu said, "We will be in a comfortable position to hold the exams if the COVID positivity rate comes down to 1%. It has come down significantly from 10%, in some districts it is down to 2%. The exams will be in a modified manner, maybe time-wise, may be paper-wise.
 
 "We are keen on holding the exams. Many are saying that because CBSE has canceled the exams we too should do the same. The exams will not be held in the manner it used to be. Marks of Class 10 and 12 exams are important for many students who would appear for TET or any other entrance exams or for jobs. It might not be important for those who are planning to opt for engineering or medical," the minister added.
