Various parents associations have expressed satisfaction over the date of board examinations. Ashok Agarwal, president of the All India Parents Association, said, “We welcome the dates fixed by the central government for board examinations. We had demanded that the examinations be conducted in May-June so that students could get some additional time to complete their courses.”

The Union Education Minister congratulated the students and said, “The CBSE has already reduced the syllabus for board examinations by 30 per cent. Besides, other problems of the students will also be addressed. We will also address students studying in CBSE schools in 25 countries of the world.
