The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has decided to cancel class 10 Board exams for the year 2021 and postpone the class 12 Boards. This has been done keeping in mind the resurgence of Covid-19 cases in the country. Boards 2021 were scheduled to begin from May 4. With rising infections, many people across the country were appealing to the government to cancel, postpone or conduct the exams online. For the past few days, social media websites were flooding with hashtags #CancelBoardExams2021 and #CancelBoards2021. This is a welcome move by many parents and students who were stressed about getting exposed to the virus and risking their health. For 12th Boards, CBSE will review the Covid-19 situation on June 1 and then decide on a date. The date will be announced 15 days in advance.
