The health and education authorities have refused to cancel this year’s board exams in spite Pakistan is combating the third wave of the corona-virus.
In March, the Federal Education Minister Shafqat Mahmood had announced that board examinations of classes nine to 12 will be held as per their timetable. The decision has not gone down well among students as they feel they are being put at risk by the government.
To urge policymakers to take back their decisions the students, at multiple times, have taken to social media to demand the government cancel the exams. To urge the government to cancel the exams the students once again started the trend #cancelboardexams2021.
Some of the tweets were equipped with memes while others pointed out the seriousness of the situation.
Here’s a look at some of the reactions:
