“Don’t mess up with the education system,” the Supreme Court said on Thursday while refusing to direct the CBSE and the CISCE to provide option of hybrid mode, instead of only offline mode, to the students for appearing in class 10 and 12 board examinations amid the Covid-19 pandemic.

Observing that this “last-minute” business should be discouraged, the SC said it won’t be appropriate to intervene and disturb the entire examination process at this stage.
