CBSE to reconduct practical exams for virus-hit students
Guwahati: The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has announced that the COVID-19 positive students will get another chance to appear for the class 10 and 12 examination before June 11, 2021.
There has been a recent upsurge in the number of COVID-19 cases across the country. Amidst such a scenario, the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has instructed the affiliated schools to reconduct the practical exams for COVID-19 positive candidates, but only when the time is appropriate.
The CBSE issued a letter to all the principals and heads of CBSE affiliated schools that stated, “It has come to the notice of the board that because of Covid-19 pandemic, students of classes 10, 12, along with their families, have shifted to some other city or country and therefore, they are unable to appear in the practical/ theory exam from the school/ exam centre where the students are registered for the boards examination.”
The CBSE practical exams have started in March. The written exams for CBSE class 10 class 12 board exam candidates are set to commence from May 4, 2021, and will continue till June.
