June 25, 2020: CBSE board exams for Class 10 and 12 scheduled from July 1 to July 15 in schools across India have been cancelled and will conduct exams when the condition is conducive, informed education board CBSE to the Supreme Court on Thursday.

Supreme Court asked CBSE if it will give students the option to appear for the exams later or will declare result on the basis of internal assessment Marks.

CBSE replied that the option to appear for exams later will be given to class 12 students. Class 10 exams, which were to be held only for North-East Delhi students, are cancelled. The board told Supreme Court that it has come up with an evaluation scheme where class 12 students will be assessed on the basis of last three exams.

Supreme Court also sought clarification on the new academic year and said that the new academic year can start only in September if board results are announced in August. CBSE said that students can apply for basic assessment and board results will be announced in mid-August. The board also said that academic year will be shifted for the 2020-21 session.

The top court also heard the matter for remaining ICSE and ISC exams. CISCE has agreed to cancel class 10 and 12 exams but will not provide the option to take the exam later. CISCE will also follow internal assessment system to declare results.
