CBSE Board Exam Postponed

The CBSE Class 12 board exams for 2021 have been postponed due to a sudden spike in Covid-19 cases in the country. According to Education Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal, the decision on the revised date sheet for CBSE Class 12 Board Exam 2021 will be made after a thorough review of the ongoing pandemic situation of the country on June 1, 2021.


Speaking of this matter, an official of the Ministry of Education (MoE) said, "The board exams for Class 12 to be held from May 4 to June 14 are hereby postponed. These exams will be held hereafter.


“The situation will be reviewed on June 1 by the board and details will be shared subsequently. A notice of at least 15 days will be given before the start of the examinations.”


Demands for the cancellation of board exams raised from various sources. Apart from students and parents, the Delhi Chief Minister, Arvind Kejriwal, and other leaders have urged the Centre to cancel the exams, claiming that they may contribute to a large-scale spread of the coronavirus.


Latest Assessment Process Declared By CBSE

CBSE will assess students in Classes 9 to 12 based on the application of concepts in "real-life or unfamiliar situations," according to an official notification issued on April 22. Multiple-choice questions (MCQs), case-based questions, and source-based integrated questions will be included in the CBSE board exams as competency-based questions. Students taking the Class 12 board exams in 2021 will not be subject to the new pattern of competency-based questions. This will take effect beginning with the academic year 2021-22.
