No plan to cancel 2021 board exams, CBSE clarifies
The Union education ministry and the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) are considering rescheduling the Class X and XII board exams because of the recent surge in COVID cases.
Officials of the education ministry and CBSE met on April 12 to discuss the matter. Sources close to the ministry said it seemed “difficult” to conduct the board exams at this time
Apart from students and parents who have been demanding cancellation or differing of CBSE 2021 board exams, politicians, cutting across the party lines and actors have urged the government to reconsider its decision to hold the exams next month.
CBSE has already announced several changes in the 2021 board exams, including conducting an improvement exam for students in the same academic year. The board has also slashed its syllabus by 30 per cent and increased the conceptual questions asked in the exams.
The Maharashtra state board recently postponed Class XII and X board exams. The Maharashtra government has also written to CBSE, ICSE, IB, Cambridge boards, requesting them to reconsider their exams dates.
