New Delhi, June 26, 2020.
Central Board of Secondary Education, has decided to cancel the Class 10, 12 Board exams 2020 scheduled from July 1 to July 15, 2020. The board would now assess the students based on scores of the previous three examinations and declare the class 10, 12 results by July 15. The Supreme Court has asked CBSE to issue the notice for cancelled July exams. This order was issued after CBSE informed the court of its current decision.
CBSE Class 12 students, however, would have an option to appear for the remaining papers later when the situation is conducive. For Class 10 students, however, no such option is available.
CBSE Class 12 students would have to share their decision on whether to opt for the examination at a later date or to accept the marks based on the three previous examinations, as scored by the student. Supreme Court has directed CBSE to reword its reply to ensure that there is no confusion in the minds of the student and the parents.
