The Union Human Resource Development Ministry has taken a decision on the pending Class 10 and 12 Central Board of Secondary Education examinations, but will only reveal the details in its reply to the Supreme Court tomorrow, a source familiar with the matter told The Quint.

The decision, around which an unusual degree of secrecy is being maintained by officials, was taken at a meeting of the ministry today.

The board has been asked by the Supreme Court to communicate its stand on the conduct of pending CBSE exams by Tuesday, 23 June. The court had issued this directive while hearing a petition filed by parents, who have asked CBSE to scrap pending exams and grade students on the basis of internal assessment.

Earlier, on Saturday, The Quint had learnt that the ministry is considering the cancellation of CBSE exams, following demands from both students and state governments.

While the ministry is likely to take on call on CBSE exams by the end of day, it is not clear if an announcement regarding the conduct of JEE Main and NEET UG exams will be made or not.
