CBSE (The Central Board of Secondary Education) earlier told the Supreme Court that it has decided to cancel the pending exams for class 10 altogether and class 12 with an option to sit for exams (to be conducted at a later date) for improvement in marks. Class 12 students will be evaluated on their performance in the previous two school exams.
The Council for the Indian School Certificate Examination (CISCE) has also cancelled the ICSE and ISC or class 12 and 10 board exams which were scheduled to be held in July. Unlike CBSE, CISCE is likely to give the option to appear for improvement exams to class 10 student as well.
मुझे यह बताते हुए भी खुशी हो रही है बोर्ड परीक्षाओं का परिणाम 15 जुलाई तक घोषित कर दिया जाएगा। मैं यह दोहराना चाहूंगा कि छात्रों, अभिभावकों और शिक्षकों के स्वास्थ्य की सुरक्षा करना हमारी पहली प्राथमिकता है।@PMOIndia @HMOIndia@PIB_India @MIB_India @mygovindia @DDNewslive— Dr. Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank (@DrRPNishank) June 26, 2020
CBSE may declare all Results by Mid July so that no further delay is there in taking admission in colleges and universities or taking any entrance exams
CBSE has kept the option open for improvement in the marks and students willing can also appear for the board exam at a later date to improve performance, in case they are not satisfied with the marks given by the board. Also, for students opting to improve their performance in the board exams (at a later date) will be considered final.
HRD Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal today in his tweet mentioned, “Students will be given the choice to decide if they want their results based on the methodology of assessment as decided by CBSE or choose to write the exams again. I would like to reiterate that the health of students, parents, and teachers is our prime concern.”
