Today after the meeting with Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the Ministry of Education (MoE) has decided to postpone the class 12 exams and cancel the class 10 board exams. As of now for CBSE class 12 boards, the situation will be reviewed on June 1st and revised dates will be announced thereafter.
And for CBSE class 10 students, result will be prepared on the basis of an “objective criterion” that is to be developed by the Board. If any candidate who is not satisfied with the marks allocated to her/him on this basis will be given an opportunity to sit in an exam when the conditions are conducive to hold the exams. Last year also CBSE had prepared a new & unique scheme for class 10 students.
Before this few days back, the Ministry of Education and CBSE held a meeting amid the rising demand for cancellation on board exams. The meeting being held today will not only consider CBSE but might also bring a uniform policy or guidelines on board exams across states, as was being demanded by several state.
