The Central Board of Secondary Education, also known as CBSE, has decided a special scheme for the remaining examinations for class 12th students. Due to the coronavirus, also known as COVID-19 pandemic, has caused an abrupt ending to the ongoing board examinations that were taking place throughout the country. However, due to the lockdown taking place throughout the nation due to the deteriorating situation and the increased number of cases, the CBSE board exams were put on hold.
The CBSE board released the exam date sheet for class 10th and 12th students earlier this year. Due to the pandemic, the on-going examinations were put on hold in March 2020 in all the parts of the country. Ramesh Pokhriyal, HRD Minister, announced earlier to postpone the examinations till April, which were further deferred till July. Till now, the exams were supposed to take place in July, in the first two weeks. CBSE board also released the date sheet for the exam as well. However, the new changes have made the previous decisions null and void.
There have been rumors as well that the Central Board of Secondary Education, known as CBSE, is having an intent to cancel the examinations abroad and is shortlisting particular subjects for which the examinations are left. For clearing up the doubts of the students, CBSE released a date sheet late in the month of May. However, as the conditions under the pandemic worsened, there were oppositions from the parents’ side as the health of their children was concerned. Thus, a PIL was filed to reconsider the decisions as the exams were an important part whereas the health was indeed another important part. Due to this, the Supreme Court asked CBSE to reconsider its decision on the examinations conducted in July. Based on the recent news, released by CBSE on 25th July 2020, the examinations have been canceled with special schemes and options for class 12th students.
On Thursday, CBSE board informed Supreme Court that it is considering canceling the remaining examinations due to the worsening situation. Lakhs of students, who are going through the CBSE board exams, were tensed on the situation of their examinations. There was a major focus on class 12th examinations, as it is indeed one of the major turning points in a student’s life as no loss is entertained in the lives of the class 12th students who were about to appear in the examinations. However, in the wake of the current pandemic situations, the parents demanded the cancellation of the exams which were supposed to be held in July. Class 12th students, who were worried about their results and college admissions, finally got a particular answer regarding their examinations which was leading them to a state of utter confusion back then.
Based on the present scenario, new guidelines and judgments are passed and are about to be passed for class 12th students who were about to appear in 2020 Examinations. There is still a part of the decisions that are pending and are expected to be released soon. But for the present scenario, below are some of the guidelines which you should be aware to follow up with the present scenario.
