Cancel Exams Students Across India Start StudentLivesMatter Campaign
Many posts included #StudentLivesMatter in their tweets to pressure the educational institutions to scrap the exams and promote the students.
Students from several states including Telangana are against this.
Many students have gone to their respective hometowns once the lockdown was announced.

Cancel Exams

       Students said that most of them have gone home without taking any study material with them and due to this they are not able to prepare for the examinations. Students now are also concerned about the rising number of COVID-19 cases and their respective universities' decision to conduct exams.
The decision to conduct the final year exams and do away with the intermediate semester exams came after Human Resource Development Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal established a UGC Task Force to frame guidelines on social distancing and other safety arrangements during examinations. However, students say they have no faith in this and have expressed their unwillingness to sit for exams, citing safety concerns. The state governments, who handle education, have not yet decided upon the cancellation of final year exams.
