CBSE Board Exam Update 2020 : CBSE Clarifies Stance On Pending Board Exams

CBSE has clarified that the decision on pending 12th and 10th board examinations remains the same as notified by the Board on April 1.

Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has again clarified its stance on pending class 10 and class 12 board examinations. The board has been receiving regular queries about the pending board examinations and in light of the lockdown ending on May 3, the speculations have only increased.

"Recently there has been a lot of speculation regarding 10th CBSE Board exams. It is reiterated that the board's decision to take board exams for 29 subjects of class 10 and 12, stands the same as mentioned in circular dated 1.4.20," says a tweet posted by the Board on its official Twitter handle.

The board had released a detailed circular regarding the pending exams and has maintained that exams would be held as mentioned in the said circular.

CBSE, at the time, said that it will conduct examinations only for the main subjects (academic electives) which are required for promotion and are crucial for admissions in higher education institutes.

The central education board also said that it will not hold examinations for optional subjects and will issue instructions for assessment of such subjects separately.

For class 10 students, no pending exams will be held except for the subjects in which students in violence-hit North East Delhi could not appear in March.

CBSE has also decided not to conduct the pending examinations for the students of class 10 and class 12 in schools located outside India.

Meanwhile, Manish Sisodia, in the meeting of state education minister's with the HRD minister yesterday said that CBSE should cancel all pending examinations in the best interest of students.

The Education Ministry has asked CBSE to resume the exams whenever it is in a position to conduct it.

This year, CBSE board exams have been postponed twice. The first time it was due to the riot that  happened in the North East part of Delhi in February and the second time it's for the COVID-19 outbreak.

In schools situated in North East Delhi class 12 exams will be held for English Elective - N, 2.

No More Exams For CBSE Schools Situated Outside

On schools located abroad, the Board has said it has decided to not hold any more exams for them. "There are several CBSE schools located in 25 countries. Each of these countries are also under lockdown and/or have decided to close down the schools for various and differential lengths of time. Under such circumstances, it is felt that the Board will not be in a position to hold differential set of exams for each of these countries," the Board has said.

"Also, in the present situation, it will be difficult to bring the answer books to India for evaluation purposes. Therefore, the Board has decided to not hold any more exams for the students of class 10 and 12 schools located outside India," it added.

On March 18, the Board had decided to postponed the exams following the orders of the Education Ministry. It was then said by the Ministry that the new exam dates will be announced after March 31 after the situation improves in the country.

A week later later the Ministry gave an update that it has directed the Board to fix new dates and plan a revised schedule.

Today the decision has been taken to shorten the board exam schedule in order to expedite the exam completion process.
