December marks a very important month for students who are appearing for the final examinations. It's the time when the portions are finished, the exam schedules are published and revisions start. But this academic year has been different - the COVID-19 pandemic has left the students in the lurch with unfinished online classes, no in-person tutoring or with no laboratory classes for that matter.
Amidst this crisis, several fake reports have emerged claiming that the CBSE is conducting online exams, its practical exams dates have been published and so on.
