In the wake of Coronavirus epidemic across the country, the Centre has decided not to conduct Class 10th CBSE board exams. The exams were postponed due to the Coronavirus outbreak.
The MHRD Ministry said that the CBSE Class 10 Board exams will not be conducted in any part of the country except for Northeast Delhi, which was hit by riots in February.
Union HRD Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank said that the class 10 exams will not be held nationwide except for students from northeast Delhi. He also said that adequate time of 10 days will be given to students before conducting exams.
He also clarified that the students in Northeast Delhi who had already appeared for the exam need not appear for the same.
The CBSE had earlier said it will conduct ‘only’ the important examinations of class 12 students.
In a circular published on April 1, the CBSE had also announced that that it will not conduct pending board examinations for students who had registered from abroad. The Board cited logistics issues behind the decision.
📢Attention class X students!
No examination to be held for class X students nationwide, except for students from North-East Delhi.
