Education official has recently hinted that the Board may follow the same assessment plan for Class 12 as that of Class 10 if the covid situation fails to improve.
Lately, there has been a growing demand by students to cancel CBSE Class 12 Board exams 2021 in the wake of rising covid cases in the country.
The official told a leading web portal, “It’s too early to say, but if the situation worsens, the CBSE may follow the assessment plan of class 10.”
The official also expressed concern about how the Class 12 students would take admission in the college and universities if the examinations are postponed and results are announced by August.
The official while speaking to India TV mentioned, “We can’t further delay conducting the exam after July as the entire exam process takes more than a month including evaluation of copies and result declaration.”
Several other media reports have possibly claimed that the CBSE is planning to hold Class 12 Board Exams 2021 after July, and a final decision in this regard will be taken on during the meeting of the government and the education department officials on June 1.
