On Tuesday, Sood had tweeted, “Don’t let the exam centres become COVID hotspots. Students are precious.”
“This time the Board exams are not for the students but for the authorities. They cancel the exams : They pass. They conduct the exams : They fail. #cancelboardexams2021. Life is precious,” he had shared on Monday.
I request everyone to support students who are forced to appear for offline board exams in these tough times. With the number of cases rising to 145k a day I feel there should be an internal assessment method to promote them rather than risking so many lives. #cancelboardexam2021 pic.twitter.com/Taq38B0811
