The CBSE board exams for classes 10 and 12 will be held from May 4 to June 10 and results will be out by July 15, said Union Education Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal ‘Nishank’ on Thursday.
Nishank had earlier ruled out conducting board examinations for classes 10 and 12 till February in view of the COVID-19 situation.
Schools across the country were closed in March to contain the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic. They were partially reopened in some states from October 15.
However, a few states have decided to keep them closed in view of a spike in the number of infections.
The board exams had to be postponed mid-way in March. They were later cancelled and the results announced on the basis of an alternative assessment scheme. With PTI inputs
