Guwahati: Amid growing speculations regarding the CBSE board exams 2021, the Class 10 and 12 examinations will likely be held in February-March as usual, confirmed top official.
The controller of examinations, Sanyam Bharadwaj, said that as of now the board has no plans to delay the board exams.
The statement comes nearly a week after the CBSE confirmed that the 10th, 12th Board Exam 2021 would be conducted in pen and paper mode.
Giving much relief to the students, the controller further said that there is a possibility that students will get more gap days between their exams than last year due to the prevailing COVID situation and academic loss.
Talking about the practical examinations, Bharadwaj hoped that state governments will soon reopen schools and students will get time to prepare for the exams.
In the meantime, Bharadwaj additionally exuded confidence that the board will have the ability to handle the exams in 2021 in offline mode without hassles.
