NEW DELHI: The board exams for classes X and XII, pending due to the coronavirus-induced lockdown, will be conducted at the first possibility and there is no move to do away with the remaining exams, CBSE officials said on Wednesday.
This put to rest the speculation that the pending Class X exams for northeast Delhi have been cancelled.
On April 1, CBSE had announced via a circular that it would conduct Board exams for 29 subjects, including six Class X subjects for the northeast Delhi, 11 Class XII subjects for NE Delhi and 12 Class XII subjects for all India.
Denying any change in the decision, CBSE controller Sanyam Bhardwaj issued a statement, saying: “With regards to the conduct of Class X examinations, several queries are being received by CBSE. In this context, it is reiterated that examinations of Class X as stated in the press release dated April 1, 2020, will be conducted by CBSE. Adequate time of 10 days will be given to all stakeholders before starting the examinations. Examinations of all the subjects of Class X and XII mentioned in the press release will be conducted after assessing the situation once the lockdown is over.”
