CBSE Class 10 Board Examination suspended for the year
New Delhi : The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has suspended the Class 10th Board Examination for the year 2020, the union human resource development minister Ramesh Pokhriyal said on Tuesday, days after asserting that it will be conducted along with Class 12 board exams once the situation improves.
“No examination to be held for class X students nationwide, except for students from North-East Delhi. An adequate time of 10 days will be given to all students for the preparation of exams," HRD minister tweeted in the evening.
The ministry, however, did not mention on how the students will be passed - whether it’s based on internal school performance or marks will be given on an average of scored in other papers.
A special exemption has been announced for the students of North-East Delhi as their exams were hugely impacted due to the anti-CAA protest.
The announcement comes after a webinar where the minister spoke to tom students from various parts of India. After the webinar, the HRD minister had said that his ministry will announce dates for CBSE 12th Board examination in next two days.
On Tuesday the ministry announced that “exams for 10th class are over for the entire country". However, it did not clarify whether it applies to all school boards run by states or just CBSE that functions under the HRD ministry.
