Usually, practical tests are conducted in January and theory exams begin in February and conclude in March.
Mr Pokhriyal had last week ruled out conducting the board examinations till February in view of the COVID-19 situation.
With no clarity on the board exam dates, several schools had already conducted pre-board exams online to keep the students prepared.
The CBSE has also reduced the syllabus for each subject by 30 per cent to help students cope with the academic stress amid COVID-19 pandemic. The paper pattern of the board exams will be based on the reduced syllabus. Students can also check the revised syllabus of the exam on the official website of CBSE.
In order to help the students and keep them stress-free, government has introduced toll-free number 844-844-0632 along with the 'Manodarpan' portal - manodarpan.mhrd.gov.in, where students can contact and share their concerns.
