A writ petition has been filed in the Supreme Court to give opt out option to the candidates in all the examinations of Chartered Accountants (CA) to be held in July. It has been said in the petition that this option should also be given during the examination. Thus a petition has also been filed in the Supreme Court to cancel the state board examinations. Assam, Tripura, Telangana, Punjab and Andhra Pradesh have not canceled the state board exams. Assam has announced to conduct the examinations in August.
The social worker has filed this petition with the signatures of 6469 parents. It has been said in the petition that the state boards should adopt the model of CBSE and cancel the examinations. There is an atmosphere of concern among parents due to not canceling the examinations as there is a danger of third wave of corona. It has been said in the petition that there are 1.5 crore students of state boards in the country who have been asked to take the online examination, the students have neither been vaccinated nor given any protection. He said that getting the examinations of the students of the state boards would not only be a step-motherly treatment but would also be violative of Articles 14 and 21 of the Constitution.
Demand for early declaration of exam results
It has also been demanded in the petition that the results of class 12 students should be declared soon so that the children can prepare for further studies whether in the country or abroad. According to an estimate by UNESCO, 7.3 lakh students applied for education abroad in 2018. He said that delay in taking a decision on the examination would result in delay in the result which would lead to forfeiture of the fees already paid by the students as the fees have been paid to secure seats in foreign universities.
