Congratulating students who passed the CBSE Class XII examination, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday said that the batch appearing for the board this year did so in unprecedented circumstances due to the COVID pandemic.
He said that the education world saw many changes in the past year, yet these students embraced the new normal and gave their best, adding that he was proud of them.
Those who feel they could have worked harder or performed better can learn from this experience and hold their heads high, PM Modi said while tweeting his words of encouragement.
A bright and opportunity-filled future awaits them, he said, adding that each one of them is a powerhouse of talent.
He said, “Congratulations to my young friends who have successfully passed the 12th class CBSE examination. Best wishes for a bright, happy and healthy future.”
The board exams were canceled this year in view of the aggressive second wave of COVID-19, and the result was declared by the board on the basis of an alternative evaluation policy.
Continuing with the previous trend, girls outperformed boys by a margin of 0.54 per cent in CBSE Class 12 exams, while over 70,000 students scored above 95 per cent.
