Previously, on December 22, 2020, the Education Minister conducted an online webinar to interact with teachers and students across the country. The LIVE interaction was conducted through his official twitter handle, during which he announced that the CBSE board exams for Class 10 and 12 will not be held before the last week of February 2021. The Minister further announced the postponement of the practical exams (which are generally held in the month of January and February every year).

The Education Minister also clearly stated that the CBSE board exams will only be conducted in the offline mode. On being asked about the further reduction in the syllabus for Class 10 and 12, he said that the Ministry has already reduced 30% of the syllabus for this academic year and no further reduction in the syllabus will be done.
