As the rising cases of COVID-19 in India, the Central Board of Secondary Education told Supreme Court on Thursday that the pending exams will not be conducted for class 10th and 12th which was earlier rescheduled from 1st July to 15th July. As the exams for class 10th will remain canceled, it was said exams can be conducted for class 12th for students who opt for it as soon as conditions are under control. This announcement made many reactions on social media.
For the time being, class 12 students will be evaluated and marked on the last three school exams. They will appear in board exams at a date which will be decided later if the students would want to improve their results.
