Nipun Sharma, a student of Class XII of Bhartiya Vidya Mandir School in Kitchlu Nagar said, “Since board exams have now been pushed to June, there will be a domino effect — entrance exams will be pushed back too, and thus a delay in admission processes as well. This has affected my preparations. It will also be difficult for students who had their career plans in place and were hoping to start their journeys at some of the best universities in India or abroad.”
For Nipun the biggest problem though is the fact that he will be short-changed when it comes to a number of attempts, as in the case of JEE, for instance, one can appear till the age of 19.

Pranav Mehra student of Class XII of BCM Arya School in Shastri Nagar, said, “Once the situation gets stable, CBSE should conduct the exams. It should at least announce the dates and expedite results.”
Prabhnoor Kaur Dhaliwal, a student of Class XII from DPS Khanna, said, “We have been taking online classes the entire year and it has affected not only our physical health but also mental health. All our grades have gone down this year due to online learning. I had already started my preparations thinking that the exams will be held in March. Now, I have slowed down my fast-paced preparation. However, there still is no time to lose. With more time to practice, the competition is likely to increase too. I want to get at least 90% marks, as I am aiming for Panjab University in Chandigarh.”
