As we all are aware that CBSE already canceled examinations in its 250 off schools abroad in the past, the petition also included that the same should also be done across the country in order to prevent the spread of Coronavirus amongst students and hence their respective families. The parents also suggested that the students appearing in CBSE Board exams could be marked based on the marks obtained by them in their internal examinations. The governments of Maharashtra, Odisha, and Delhi have even requested the Ministry of Human Resource Development to cancel the scheduled examinations.
