Earlier, Pokhriyal had ruled out conducting board examinations for classes 10 and 12 till February next year in wake of the coronavirus pandemic in the country.
“Keeping the current situation in mind, it has been decided that the board exams for classes 10 and 12 will not be conducted till February next year. CBSE is making necessary preparations for conducting the 2021 examinations. A decision on the exam schedule will be taken later after assessment of situation and more consultations with stakeholders,” Nishank said earlier.
Usually, the practical exams are conducted in January and theory exams begin every year in February and conclude in March.
“Cancelling exams and promoting students without exam will put a stamp on these students. These students might face trouble in getting jobs and admissions at higher education level in future as they would be termed as COVID-era students. We do not want that for our students,” he had mentioned earlier.
