“The students have been impatiently waiting for the schedule for pending exams. It has been decided today that the exams will be conducted from July 1 to 15,” Nishank said on Twitter.
CBSE will announce a detailed schedule of the exams shortly. The CBSE board exams in India and abroad were held till March 18 after which the nationwide lockdown was announced on March 25. The exams for over 80 subjects were still pending.
The CBSE has now decided that exams will be held only for 29 main subjects, in order to speed up the evaluation process and complete the examination formalities to enable students to apply for admission to colleges and universities.
“The examinations to be held will include 12 subjects pending for class XII students across the country while the tests will be scheduled for class X only in North-East Delhi where the papers got postponed due to wide-spread violence in February,” said a HRD Ministry official.
The CBSE’s board exam schedule will be a factor in the entrance exam dates in order to make it convenient for class XII students to appear for them.
