He, however, said that A- and As-level exams will take place as per the schedule. The minister held discussions with the Cambridge board after receiving emails and messages from the students, asking him to get the exams postponed.
O/A-level students across the country wanted the international board to cancel the May/June 2021 exams.
They said that due to online classes, their preparation for the board exams is not sufficient and the syllabi of most of their courses have not been completed.
