Bollywood actor Sonu Sood, who has been consistently tweeting in favour of the cancellation of board exams due to rising coronavirus cases across the country, was quite elated on Wednesday as the Education Ministry announced its new schedule. As per the new announcement by the Education Ministry, the CBSE exams for class 12 have been postponed and the ministry will review the situation on June 1. Class 10 Board exams have, however, been cancelled.
Sonu Sood shared on Twitter, “So finally it happened. Congratulations to every student.”
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.
