New Delhi: Union Education Minister Dr. Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank on December 22 cleared the confusion regarding CBSE Board examinations for Class 10 and 12 and announced that no exams would be held in January and February 2021.
However, he ensured that the Class 10 and 12 board exams are not cancelled, a schedule will be decided after February 2021.
Pokhriyal expressed, “The Classes 10 and 12 CBSE board exams 2021 will not be held in January and February. The exact exam schedule will be decided after February 2021. Cancelling exams and promoting students without exam will put a stamp on these students. These students might face trouble in getting jobs and admissions at higher education level in future as they would be termed as COVID-era students. We do not want that for our students.”
