Looking at the rising cases of coronavirus in the country, the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has earlier this month cancelled its class 10 board exams and deferred the class 12 board exams. Following the decision from the CBSE, several state boards have also postponed or cancelled their exams too.
Moreover, the ICSE class 10 board exams have also been cancelled in view of the worsening COVID-19 situation and the option for students to appear later has been withdrawn. However, the Council for The Indian School Certificate Examinations (CISCE) had announced that class 10 students will get an option to either write the exams later or get evaluated on the basis of alternative criteria.
After postponing the CBSE Class 12 exams, Union Education Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank said that the new date sheet for CBSE class 12 board exams will be out after June 1. While saying so, the Education Minister ensured that the students will be given a notice of at least 15 days before the start of class 12 board exams 2021.
Students must note that the CBSE class 12 revised or new date sheet 2021 for Arts, Science and Commerce will be released in June, and the subject wise dates will be updated accordingly.
