Centre postpones CTET exam due to COVID-19
New Delhi, Jun 25: The CBSE on Thursday postponed the Central Teacher Eligibility Test (CTET) scheduled on July 5, which will now be conducted when the situation is conducive, HRD Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal 'Nishank’ said.
"The 14th edition of CTET scheduled on July 5 has been postponed. A new date for examination will be intimated when the situation is more conducive for conduct of examinations," Nishank said.
Earlier on Thursday, the Supreme Court also passed orders about the Class 10 and 12 CBSE exams and ICSE exams.
The Supreme Court has asked the CBSE to detail the assessment scheme in its notification on Class 10 and 12 exams. The Solicitor General told the court that the notification will be out latest by tomorrow.
The parents pleaded before the SC to have the CBSE declare the assessment results by the end of the month. They told the court that the entrance exams are lined up.
The court then told the CBSE to specifically mention in its notification when the assessment results will be declared. The court however said that it cannot direct and the CBSE has to take a call on the matter.
Solicitor General Tushar Mehta told the court that for Class 12, students can opt for an assessment scheme to be notified by the CBSE or they can opt to appear in the exams when the conditions become conducive.
