The Central Board of Secondary Examination (CBSE) is likely to announce the dates of the remaining Class 10 and Class 12 exams on 18 May.

Union Education Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal took to Twitter on Saturday, 16 May, and said that the board is taking into consideration some additional ‘technical aspects’ after which the date sheets will now be announced on Monday.

Earlier today, he had said that the exam dates, which are likely to be held in the first half of July, will be announced at 5:00 pm. “Releasing the date sheet for #CBSE Board Examinations for Class 10th and 12th today at 5.00 pm,” Pokhriyal had written in his tweet.

In his earlier communications, Pokhriyal has clarified that for the students of North East Delhi, apart from the remaining subjects, exams will be held for subjects for which the students couldn’t appear due to the violence that rocked the city earlier in February.

After a lockdown was announced by Prime Minister Narendra Modi to contain the spread of COVID-19, schools and colleges have remained closed across the country and exams have been postponed.
