Vishnu Karthik, CEO, The Heritage Schools, said that with this decision to cancel the board exams, the matter has become clear to the students and parents and everyone’s stress has also been reduced. However, taking this decision was not easy considering the seriousness of class 12 examinations for admission to a university.

However, the subsequent process is also of equal importance and is very important in setting the standard of evaluation of children.
