CBSE Board Exams 2021: Class 10 exams cancelled, Class 12 exams postponed
New Delhi, Apr 12: The CBSE Board Exams for Class 10 have been cancelled and Class 12 board exams have been postponed. The decision comes soon after Prime Minister Narendra Modi held a meeting with education minister and other top officials amid growing concern about students health.
"The Board Exams for Class XIIth to be held from May 4th to June, 14th, 2021 are hereby postponed. These exams will be held hereafter. The situation will be reviewed on 1st June 2021 by the Board, and details will be shared subsequently. A notice of at least 15 days will be given before the start of the examinations," the government said.
"The Board Exams for Class Xth to be held from 4th May to June 14th, 2021 are hereby cancelled. The results of Class Xth Board will be prepared on the basis of an objective criterion to be developed by the Board," it added.
Any candidate who is not satisfied with the marks allocated to him/her on this basis will be given an opportunity to sit in an exam as and when the conditions are conducive to hold the exams.
Amid pandemic, the board exams were cancelled and the results were announced on the basis of an alternative assessment scheme, last year.
Both the Central Board of Secondary Education and Council for the Indian School Certificate Examinations decided to do away with a merit list last year.
