Along with many sectors of the society, the pandemic has impacted the education system the most. In the wake of a raging second wave of coronavirus, the government had postponed the Class 12 board exams temporarily without giving a proper date.
In regard to the date and method of conducting the CBSE exams, a high-level meeting of the government with the education department is scheduled on June 1. Post this meeting, the final plan of action will be announced. However, considering the present acute condition, it is unlikely to be arranged before July or August 2021.
While the CBSE Class 10th students have been promoted to the next class on the basis of the internal examinations without a final board exam, students of grade 12 also demand the same. Citing the grim number of the Covid-19 cases, online mode of teaching and many other reasons, a large section of the students demand cancellation of the offline examination.
The Ministry of education has consulted many experts on this subject and is currently preparing for a decisive plan to tackle the issue. There are also reports that the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) and JEE Advanced may also get postponed. They may be held after the Class 12th and JEE Mains examination.
The extending dates and uncertain examinations create panic amongst the students. The shuffling months of the academic year has impacted the education pattern to a great extent. The parents as well as students continue to wait with no end in sight.
Meanwhile, CBSE Class 10th results will be announced on June 20th at cbse.nic.in according to the official timetable released by the board today.
