The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) board exams for class 10th and 12th have been cancelled. The exams may be conducted when the COVID-19 situation gets normal.
The Solicitor General told the Supreme Court to cancel the pending CBSE board exams scheduled in July.
The exams were pending due to the outbreak of the COVID-19 in the country which has infected over 4.73 lakh in the country.
Even though ICSE had made appearing for the ICSE 12th exams optional for students across India, that option has now been scrapped.
The internal assessment system will be followed to declare the ICSE board exam results for classes 10 and 12. No option is now available for students to appear for the board exams.
