Considering the rising number of coronavirus cases across the country and the inability of states like Delhi and Maharashtra to conduct the exams, the CBSE has decided to cancel the pending exams of CBSE classes 10 & 12.
The exams were earlier postponed to be held from July 1 to July 15. According to the CBSE, class 10 exams are cancelled completely and they will be evaluated on the basis of the exams already conducted and the marks scored in internals. However, students of Class 12 will have the options to appear for the exams at a later date when the conditions are favorable.
The SC was also hearing a plea by a group of parents to cancel the exams for students’ safety.
