Class 12 Board Exams 2021 – Majority of States Say Yes to CBSE Exams, Big Announcement Soon

27 May 2021, New Delhi – As per the written feedback shared by various states across India, as many as 32 states and Union Territories are in favour of conducting the CBSE Class 12 board examinations. According to media reports, the states who have firmly opposed the idea of holding the exams in pen-and-paper format are Maharashtra, Delhi, Goa, and Andaman & Nicobar. 

Now that the majority opinion of the states are in, Union Education Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal would be announcing a big decision on CBSE Class 12 board exams 2021 by 1 June 2021, which will in turn pave the way for a suitable decision on different state board exams, as well as ISC Class 12 board exams 2021. 

On top of this, Pokhriyal is also chairing an online meeting with the vice chancellors of central universities to discuss issues like college admissions, conduct of upcoming academic sessions, admission process, and entrance tests in 2021. 

State Opinions on CBSE Class 12 Board Exams 2021

CBSE had earlier proposed two distinct options for conducting the Class 12 board exams in 2021, with Option A of conducting regular exams in existing format for 19 major subjects at the designated examination centres. Under Option A, assessment of minor subjects will be calculated based on the performance in major subjects. 

On the other hand, Option B allows exams for all major subjects, but within the premises of the students’ own schools (instead of the designated centres). In addition, each exam will be held for a shorter duration of 90 minutes under Option B.  

  • Out of the 32 states and UT’s that have supported the decision of conducting CBSE Class 12 board exams 2021, around 29 have shown inclination towards Option B or agree to support the Centre’s final decision on the matter.
  • Out of all the states, only Tripura, Rajasthan, and Telangana have chosen Option A as their preference for conducting Class 12 board exams.

Students will now have to wait till June 1 for the Education Ministry to collate various opinions and challenges posed by the states and come up with a suitable decision.
