The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has decided to conduct exams only for 29 main subjects out of the 41 pending subjects of Class X and Class XI board. This decision was taken due to the nation-wide lockdown measures implemented due to COVID-19.

The board also stated that whenever the CBSE board is in position to conduct exams, then only the exams will be conducted for all these 29 main subjects by giving adequate notice to all the stakeholders.

The Union HRD Minister Mr. Ramesh Pokhriyal announced this decision in the press meet today held at New Delhi. The CBSE board has taken this decision as it was not in a position to hold exams due to the pandemic situation caused by COVID-19 and also due to the law and order situation that happened at North-East Delhi.

The CBSE board also stated that it is not possible to announce new exam schedule amid grave circumstances, but the board assured that a 10 days’ notice will be given to all the stakeholders before starting the board exams.
