Keeping the Coronavirus epidemic in view, the Council for Indian School Certificate Examination (CISCE) has decided to give an option to the students of Class 10 and 12 to either appear in the pending examination or skip the exam. The result of students who skip the exams will be announced based on their performance in the pre-board exams.
ICSE Board has provided this option to all the students in India and abroad. The students have an option to sit in the pending CISCE board exams 2020, to be conducted from July 1 to 14.
Else, students can opt-out to appear for exams. In such a case, the result will be prepared on the basis of the student’s performance in the pre-board exam / internal assessment and already conducted board examinations.
According to Gerry Arathoon, Chief Executive and Secretary, Council for the Indian School Certificate Examinations (CISCE), the students will have to communicate their option to their respective schools by June 22. The exams which were postponed due to the lockdown to contain the spread of coronavirus, are now scheduled to be conducted from July 1 to 14.
