Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal 'Nishank'

After a month of cancelling Class 12 board exams, the central government has announced that the students who are not satisfied with the assessment process for Class 12 results, can appear in offline exams in August, 2021.

The minister added that the students will get their results on the basis of merit rather than interim assessment. “If a student is not satisfied with the new evaluation system, they don’t need to worry about it since we are ready to conduct optional board exams for such students,” said the Education Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal ‘Nishank’ on Monday.

“We will conduct optional board examinations in August this year for such students as soon as the Covid-19 situation returns to normal. So, there is no need for students to have any kind of apprehension,” the minister added.

The Union minister made the statement in an audio statement.

It is to be noted that lakhs of CBSE Class 12 students across the country are waiting for the declaration of the board results, which is scheduled to take place on July 31, 2021.
