New Delhi: CBSE board exams for Class 10 and 12 next year will begin on 4 May, Education Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank announced Thursday.

While written exams will begin in May, practical exams will begin on 1 March, Pokhriyal said during a live interaction on Twitter Thursday evening.

“After several rounds of consultations, we decided that the board exams for Class 10 and 12 will begin from 4 May and will be over by 10 June. We will try to do the evaluation in time and declare the results by 15 July. Practical examination will begin from 1 March,” he said.

The date sheets for both Class 10 and 12 will be issued soon, the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE), that conducts the exams, said in a statement.

“CBSE will also inform all the stakeholders about information related to examinations from time to time. Information will be made available on CBSE website,” the board added.

Pokhriyal said the decision to conduct the board exams in May was taken after consultation with other boards and keeping the pandemic situation in mind.

The exams were delayed by more than two months this year due to the pandemic. Typically, the exams begin in February and end in March.

Pandemic stress

The board received many appeals, from states, students, parents and teachers, seeking a delay in conducting the exams in view of the pandemic. Parents asked for the delay so students could have time for one-on-one interactions with teachers once schools reopen. Students mostly stayed home this year, with schools carrying out online classes and exercises in view of Covid-19.

Some also asked for the board exams to be conducted in an online mode, but the CBSE earlier clarified that the exam will take place as it usually does, in an offline mode.
