CBSE Class 10, Class 12 exams 2021: Much confusion has been in the minds of students about CBSE Class 10, Class 12 exams, from datesheet, pattern to practicals. Union Education Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank took to Twitter to provide clarity on ongoing confusion over 2021 CBSE Board, JEE, NEET exam dates. The education minister said that he will address all concerns regarding these exams on December 10 in an interactive session with students, teachers and parents.
The minister has asked all stakeholders to voice their concerns, suggestions and opinions on CBSE Class 10, Class 12 exams 2021 by using the hashtag #EducationMinisterGoesLive.
"Dear all, 2020 has been a year of a great many changes like adjusting to #onlineeducation, adapting to #newnormal. Happy to share that I am going live on Dec 10 to talk about upcoming competitive/board exams with you. Drop your concerns below using #EducationMinisterGoesLive," Pokhriyal tweeted on Wednesday (December 2).
Amid all the hullabaloo, CBSE also made it clear that Class 10 and Class 12 board exams will be taken in conventional written manner and the news doing the rounds about holding exams online has no substance in it.
Schools across the country have been closed in March to contain the spread of COVID-19 and partially reopened in some states from October 15. However, a few states decided to keep them closed in view of a spike in the infections.
"No final decision has been taken regarding the dates for the conduct of board exams, and consultations with stakeholders are still in process. The exams, as and when they are conducted, will be in the written mode and not in an online mode. The exams will be conducted following all COVID protocols," a senior CBSE official said.
It is to be noted that CBSE releases the datesheet for Class 10, 12 board exams in December and conducts the examinations in February and March but it is expected that the CBSE may not be able to keep with the date this time due to coronavirus pandemic. In 2019, the datasheet was released by released by CBSE in November.
