New Delhi: After a meeting with Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the Ministery of Education has decided to postpone the Class XII exams and cancel the Class X Board exams.
For CBSE Class XII Boards, the situation will be reviewed on June 1 and revised dates will be announced thereafter.
For CBSE Class X students, the result will be prepared on the basis of an “objective criterion” to be developed by the Board. Any candidate who is not satisfied with the marks allocated to him/her on this basis will be given an opportunity to sit in an exam as and when the conditions are conducive to hold the exams. Last year too CBSE had devised a new scheme for class 10 students.
Earlier this week, the Ministry of Education and CBSE held a meeting amid the rising demand for cancellation on board exams. The meeting being held today will not only consider CBSE but might also bring a uniform policy or guidelines on board exams across states, as was being demanded by several state ministers.
