Delay and uncertainty in holding the Class XII examinations is leading to a “sense of insecurity and anxiety” among students, at times also “affecting their mental health”. “Unpredictability and suspense over the exams are also affecting parents, who in turn are putting “more pressure on students”, say professionals in the education sector.

According to Anoop Gautam, CEO of a company providing online education to Class XII students, Class XII boards are the time when students plan their career path and appear for competitive examinations. The Class XII marks are also important for getting admission to undergraduate courses in institutions on the basis of merit.

“Many countries are now looking for alternate ways to conduct exams so that the students are free from mental pressure,” Gautam said, urging the government to take action and get the examinations completed so that students can overcome the prevailing sense of insecurity.

Rajeev Tiwari, co-founder of a company imparting online education to Class XII students, said the second wave of Covid-19 and confusion about exams has left everyone “clueless” about the next academic year.

“Academic uncertainties to apprehensions over healthcare are also affecting students’ mental health. The unpredictability is also affecting parents, resulting in them putting more pressure on children. Understandably, parents are worried about their child’s future, safety and career. Parents and mentors should motivate and help students overcome their fears and concerns. They can have conversations with children to reduce their stress and perhaps consult a psychologist if required,” says Tiwari.
