CBSE Board Exams 2021 – No Postponement Expected; Authorities Assure Adherence to Guidelines

As the coronavirus cases around the country are on a surge, several students, teachers, parents, and politicians are demanding a cancellation or postponement of CBSE Class 10th and 12th board examinations which are due to begin on May 4. However, in response to the requests, Dr. Sanyam Bhardwaj, Controller of Examinations, CBSE, has stated that the Central Board of Secondary Education shall be following all the COVID-19 related guidelines strictly while conducting the CBSE board exams 2021 as per schedule. While speaking at a discussion session of a private educational institution, Bhardwaj noted that the number of CBSE examination centres have already been increased from 5000 to 7000 in order to avoid unnecessary crowding. 

Addressing the students who are taking the board exam this year, the CBSE official said, “First of all, we will not leave any stone unturned for the students. For students, focus on your studies, do not listen to any rumour and false pretence. Concentrate on your studies only and be prepared. When you are coming to examination centre, check the details before coming and bring only the identified things and don’t get in touch with anyone else and carry sanitizers.”

Speaking to the parents and teachers, he said, “My request to parents, since it is so difficult for you all, it’s a risk to send them to the examination, but kindly continue to support us. Ensure that your child follows all the given precautionary measures. Teachers, our most important stakeholders, we cannot do anything without your support, and it is known to me that they are working extremely hard. My sincere request to them is that do devote your time sincerely in evaluation process and help us declare the results as soon as possible.” 

CBSE Board Exams 2021 – Political Parties Appeal for Postponement

In the wake of the rising COVID cases in the country, Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi Vadra and a Shiv Sena party leader have written to the Union Education Ministry separately, appealing to reschedule the CBSE board exam 2021. 

At the same time, Delhi Education Minister Manish Sisodia has asked the schools in the capital to delay the CBSE Class 10 and Class 12 board exam till at least 20 April. “We have advised schools to consult with their external examiners and postpone the remaining CBSE class 10 and 12 practical exams for a while. Only one or two practical exams are left in a majority of schools and we have advised them to reschedule these to (a date) after April 20,” he said.
