CBSE Class 10 and 12 Board Examination – Updates

In the meanwhile, as per a recent report, the Centre has been reassessing its decision to hold the Class 10 and 12 board examinations as per schedule in pen and paper mode. Besides, a large number of students, teachers, parents, and politicians have been demanding a cancellation or postponement of CBSE Class 10th and 12th board examinations which are due to begin on May 4. This includes Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi Vadra and a Shiv Sena party leader who have separately written to the Union Education Ministry, 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.
