The Central Bureau of Secondary Education (CBSE) has decided to cancel the Examinations for classes X and XII which were scheduled to be held from July 1st to 15th 2020.
The decision has come in the wake of several requests received from various State Governments and the prevailing circumstances due to Covid 19 as on date. Announcing this here today, the Union HRD Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal ‘Nishank’ expressed his gratitude towards Supreme Court for accepting CBSE proposal of not holding the CBSE examinations of class XII from July 1st to July 15 and for giving priority to safety concerns of students. He said that Assessment from the performance of students in the cancelled examination will be done based on the assessment scheme as suggested by the competent committee of the CBSE for declaration of result for both Class-X and Class-XII.
Nishank said that CBSE will conduct an optional examination for class XII students in the subjects the examination for which were scheduled to be conducted from July 1st to 15, 2020 as soon as conditions are conducive. Candidates whose results will be declared based on the assessment scheme will be allowed to appear in these optional examinations to improve their performances if they wish so.
