Furthermore, it is expected to rise this year with students who had deferred their 2020 admissions or were waiting for a relaxation in pandemic restrictions around the world. Hence, if the CBSE Class 12 Board Exam 2021 gets further delayed, it will make it tougher to get admission in foreign universities due to the increased competition for limited number of seats.
Akshay Chaturvedi, Founder and CEO, Leverage Education was quoted by India Today as saying, "We have spoken with a host of foreign universities over the last few months on this.
