CBSE Board Exams: Education Minister To Announce Dates Today
Pokhriyal had previously said that board exams will be conducted in offline mode only.
Union Minister of Education Dr Ramesh Pokhriyal will be announcing dates for Classes 10 and 12 board examinations to be conducted by the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) in 2021 at 6 pm on Thursday, 31 December.
In a tweet posted on 26 December, Dr Pokhriyal had said, “I will announce the date when the exams will commence for students appearing for CBSE board exams in 2021.”
Pokhriyal had previously said that the CBSE board exams 2021 will not be conducted in the months of January and February, given the COVID-19 pandemic.
Reiterating that online exams are not the most suitable option, Pokhriyal had earlier said that board exams will be conducted in offline mode only.
Earlier, the CBSE had said that practical exams will be held for students of Class 12 who have been able to attend practical classes.
However, since several students have complained that their schools have not been able to hold a single practical class physically, the board has announced that it is exploring alternate modes for marking practicals.
