Due to the sudden outbreak of the novel Coronavirus, everything in India, much like the rest of the world, had come to a halt. Educational institutions, factories, industries, shops, everything came to stand still. Even the ongoing board exams were paused. This was the first time, that keeping in mind the health threats to students, teachers and parents, the government had asked the educational boards to put ongoing exams on a hold. This was in March, 2020.
Now, after about three months of inactivity, and keeping the current scenario in mind, the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has released its exam date sheet for the pending class 10th and 12th board exams. Pending exams will now be held from July 1, only for major subjects.
Along with the date sheet, it has also released an advisory on the precautions that the students, teachers, parents, and the schools conducting exams will have to take.
The Human Resource Development Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal released the date sheet through his twitter handle. The board has also decided to give the students of class 9th and 11th, who could not clear their exams in the first round, another chance. The schools have been advised to conduct online or offline exams and promote these students to the next class.
