New Delhi/UNI: Congress General Secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra on Friday said at a time when coronavirus is ravaging the country again, CBSE 'forcing' students to sit for exams is not done.

She said that board exams should be cancelled , rescheduled or arranged in a manner that does not require physical presence.

Vadra tweeted, ''It is downright irresponsible of boards like the CBSE to force students to sit for exams under the prevailing circumstances. Board exams should either be cancelled, rescheduled or arranged in a manner that does not require the physical presence of children at crowded exam centres.''

''While corona is ravaging our country again, the added pressure of exams is bound to affect the mental health of children. Our education system needs to drastically alter its attitude and start reflecting sensitivity and compassion towards children rather than just talk, '' she posted.
