Changes are expected in the examination pattern.
Exams wil be held offline.
There has been too much of chaos and confusion regarding board exams for classes 10th and 12th CBSE. Examinations for class 10th were cancelled which were supposed to commence by 4th May. Post this, students of class 12 were in a confused state of mind regarding their exams as the pandemic demanded that children stay indoors and children were worried about their future.
A lot of students demanded via petitions that exams should be cancelled as their lives were at stake because of the growing covid cases and a lot of families were suffering which was enough to throw students in a depressed state of mind.
After this some teachers and students rolled out their opinions that exams shouldn’t be cancelled, instead some arrangements must be made for conducting safe exams as this is the crucial time for them as they will need to finalise further education.
Now the news has come up that CBSE has announced a tentative date for class 12 board examinations. As per reports, exams will be held in offline mode from July 15 to August 26. The exact date sheet will however be released on June 1 after the board holds a review meeting to access the feasibility of holding exams. Some students are still against holding offline exams, though.
CBSE is likely to hold exams for half the regular exam time i.e. 1.5 hour exam instead of the regular 3 hours. The exams will be held for only a few subjects. There will be only MCQs and very short type questions so that students can complete the exam on time. As per this proposal which has been termed as Plan B, students who miss an exam due to Covid related issue will be allowed to appear for the same exam 15 days later. But the final decision in this matter will be clarified only on June 1.
All mandates pertaining to Covid safety guidelines will be followed to ensure the safety of both students and teachers.
