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.
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."
As per a 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
