He also added a little note with the video which read, ‘I request everyone to support students who are forced to appear for offline board exams in these tough times. With the number of cases rising to 145k a day I feel there should be an internal assessment method to promote them rather than risking so many lives. #cancelboardexam2021’.

In the video, Sood says, “On the behalf of students, I want to put in a request. CBSE and board exams are going to be held offline, I do not think the students are ready to sit for the exams amid the prevailing circumstances.” He went on to give examples of other countries like Saudi Arabia and Mexico that cancelled exams in educational institutions despite far fewer cases of the coronavirus.
He also added, “Still, we are thinking of holding exams, which is unfair. I do not think this is the right time for offline exams. I would like everyone to come forward and support these students, so they can be safe. All the best.”
During the lockdown, Sonu Sood was one celebrity who gave his all to help out migrant workers who were stranded away from their homes and without jobs. Under his ‘Ghar Bhejo’ program, he ensured that workers stranded in Mumbai get to their homes safely in UP and Bihar.
