CBSE exams 2020 will go on, says Board; Sisodia advises cancellation
CBSE exam 2020: The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) on Wednesday said it was considering sticking to the earlier plan and conducting CBSE 10th and CBSE 12th board exams for main subjects only after analyzing the situation when the coronavirus lockdown would end on May 3. The statement came amid speculation over the date of the remaining CBSE board exams.
CBSE tweeted, “Recently, there has been a lot of speculation regarding the 10th CBSE Board exams. It is reiterated that the board’s decision to hold board exams for 29 subjects of class 10 and 12, stands the same as mentioned in a circular dated April 1, 2020.”
The Board added that all stakeholders would get 10-day notice before the exams are conducted.
Meanwhile, Delhi Education Minister Manish Sisodia on Wednesday recommended CBSE exams be canceled. He said CBSE 10th and CBSE class 12th students should be promoted on the basis of internal exams and assessment.
The board, however, had earlier denied the possibility of cancellation of the pending board exams.
