CBSE board exams cancelled or not? Latest CBSE circular clears confusion about pending Class 10 exams

After the meeting between HRD Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal and the state education ministers on Tuesday, a major confusion has arisen regarding whether the CBSE Board Exams 2020 is cancelled or not.

Delhi Deputy CM Manish Sisodia had suggested to the HRD Ministry at the meeting that CBSE Class 10 and Class 12 students should be promoted directly based on internal marks like the students of classes 9 and 11 as the board exams couldn’t be conducted in the Covid-19 lockdown.

After Sisodia had tweeted the same on Tuesday evening, it left CBSE boards students utterly confused — Would the CBSE Board Exams 2020 be cancelled now?

CBSE Secretary Anurag Tripathy confirms CBSE Class 10 exams are cancelled: What does it mean?

While speaking in an interview to a news channel, CBSE Secretary Anurag Tripathy said, “As the minor subjects of Class 10 Board exams were pending, it can be cancelled.”

Just like Manish Sisodia had suggested, Tripathy also said that the CBSE Class 10 students would be promoted directly to the next class on the basis of their internal assessment marks.

So, does this mean that all pending CBSE Class 10 board exams are cancelled? No.

As per CBSE circular released on April 29, this reference is to the minor CBSE Class 10 board exams which would have no effect on students’ careers if cancelled.

The CBSE Board exams for Class 10 students which had been postponed due to the North Delhi violence will be carried out once lockdown is lifted and the situation stabilized.

What Anurag Tripathy said about CBSE Class 12 board exams 2020

However, the CBSE Secretary at the time didn’t give any information about the CBSE Class 12 board exams 2020.

“The world is together fighting against the coronavirus outbreak, including the CBSE boards and people associated. We all are stuck in the lockdown,” he told at the interview.

“Parents should not panic and let their children do self-study meanwhile. The decision will be uniform for the students across the globe once the situation gets better,” he added.

What the latest CBSE circular of April 29 says

Because of the all the confusion from seemingly contradicting news released on Tuesday, CBSE released a circular on Wednesday to help students, parents and teachers clear their doubts.

“In this context, it is once again reiterated that remaining examinations of CBSE Class 10 as stated in the Press Release dated 01.4.2020 will be conducted by CBSE,” the circular stated.

“Therefore, there is no change in the position of holding board examinations and the position continues as per information given vide Press Release dated 01.4.2020,” it added.

Thus, CBSE Class 10 exams are cancelled ONLY for the minor remaining subjects for students all over India, but Delhi students whose exams were postponed due to riots will need to appear for the major papers once lockdown is lifted.

CBSE Board Exams 2020 to be held for 29 major subjects

As per a press release by CBSE from April 1, it was decided that CBSE would hold the board exams for only 29 major subjects once the lockdown lifts. All other minor exams were cancelled.

The CBSE Class 10 Board Exams would be conducted just for the major subjects that had been postponed due to the North Delhi violence.

These Class 10 board exams will not be held for students all over India, but only for those exam centres in the affected regions in North Delhi where the major exams were also unable to take place due to reported violence.

For CBSE Class 12 students, the 12 remaining exams to be carried out hold great importance as they would be required for college admissions once they pass out from school.

Below is the photo of the CBSE press release from April 1, 2020, listing all the subjects in which CBSE Board Exams will be carried out after the lockdown is lifted:

CBSE tweet on Wednesday

CBSE also tweeted on Wednesday just before issuing their latest circular to clarify to students that all the CBSE board exams had not been cancelled and the dates for the same would be decided once the lockdown lifts and the situation is stabilized.

CBSE Board Exam 2020 paper evaluation and result date

As per a conversation with India Today, CBSE Secretary Anurag Tripathy informed, ”We have started with the evaluation process but the process has not over yet due to the lockdown. We still need 1-2 months to give the final CBSE Result 2020.”

He also said that if the government permitted, the CBSE Class 10 Board Exam 2020 result could be declared within just 10 days of lockdown opening and paper evaluation resuming.

However, we need to note that there is no guarantee of when the lockdown will be lifted; the expected date is May 3, 2020.

Also, the CBSE circular released on Wednesday repeated the same.

“It is once again clarified that adequate time of 10 days will be given to all stakeholders before starting the examinations,” it stated.

Students are requested to keep a watch on the official CBSE website for more updates.
