The pre-board ICSE and ISC Pre-Board Exams 2021 will be held in early January by the Indian School Certificate Examinations (CISCE). Students can check all the details on the official website of the board.



According to the latest update, these two pre-board exams will be held in schools in January before the final ICSE and ISC exams take place in Lucknow. The first pre-board exam will take place from January 10, 2021, while the second pre-board exam will be held in the last week of February. Meanwhile, CISCE is preparing to conduct the exam in either April or May 2021.


This news has come after the board’s plea to all the chief ministers of the Indian states and union territories in order to reopen the schools partially from January 2021.


As per the board statement issued by the board, “With the students physically attending school, this time will be utilized for Practical Work, Project Work, SUPW Work and for Doubt Clearing lessons. This will be extremely beneficial to the students who will now get the time to interact directly with their teachers”.


ICSE and ISC board exams will be conducted in April next year without any further delay. In wake of COVID-19 pandemic, the gap between two papers might be increased by the board and also the admit card will be released online.


Not only that but the Chief Executive and Secretary Council for the Indian School Certificate Examinations (CISCE) also wrote to the Chief Election Commissioner of India requesting him to share the poll schedule of the states where elections are likely to take place in April and May. Hence the board can take the final call and fix the final dates for the Class 10th and Class 12th board exams.


This year ICSE and ISC board examinations were scheduled in February and March respectively. However, all the exams got postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic. Every school in the country remained closed in the wake of this deadly disease. However, some schools reopened in October in a few states while most of the states in the country have decided to keep them shut due to the rising cases of deadly coronavirus.
