Eklavya Agarwal, Shruti Shukla, Sneha Arora and Ekagra Gupta, students of Class XII at CMS, expressed concern about their future due to the cancellation of board examination and said that they are not satisfied with the proposed 30-30-40 formula of assessments, as it would not do justice to the students who have worked hard for the examination.

He said that Class XII examinations can also be conducted with proper Covid protocol in the same way as the Government of India is conducting the NEET and IIT-JEE exams.

Supporting the students and parents' demand, Dr Gandhi made a touching appeal towards the Prime Minister, Mr Modi and Union HRD Minister, Mr Ramesh Pokhriyal that students' merit should not be disrespected and overlooked and their future must not be put at stake. He said that these students are the country's future and it is in the interest of the nation to listen to their call.
