The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has decided to cancel class 10 and postpone Class 12 board exams due to the persisting Covid-19 situation in the country. Several political leaders and stakeholders had urged the CBSE to reschedule exams at various levels or conduct these remotely keeping in mind the safety of the candidates.

Both class 10 and 12 exams were scheduled to be held from May 4 to June 14. Since Class 12 results are the basis for admission into higher education institutions, it has been decided to postpone the exams. The board will review the situation on June 1 and a notice of at least 15 days will be given before the start of the examinations, said the Ministry statement.

On the other hand, Class 10 results will be prepared on the basis of an objective criterion which will be developed by the Board. Any candidate who is not satisfied with the allocated marks will be allowed to write an exam as and when conditions are conducive.
