Clearing the rumours regarding CBSE board exams for class 10th and 12th board, the officials have announced that the board exams for the year 2021 will be conducted in the written mode. However, nothing as of now has been stated regarding the practical exams or their alternatives.
A senior CBSE official while addressing the PTI, mentioned, “No final decision has been taken regarding the dates for the conduct of board exams, and consultations with stakeholders are still in process. The exams, as and when they are conducted, will be in the written mode and not in online mode. The exams will be conducted following all covid protocols.” This confirms that the final date sheet of CBSE board examination 2021 is underway. The statement has also lit up the rumours of delay in board examinations, however, there has been no official announcement regarding any sort of delay.
CBSE Practical Exams
As the practical portion of the syllabus has seen the worst hit in online teaching, conducting full-time CBSE board exams for them has now appeared as a big problem. On behalf of closed schools, the CBSE officials have added that, “In case students are not able to do practicals in classes before the exams, an alternative to practical exams will have to be explored.”
The CBSE director, Dr Joseph Emmanuel in an interview with Onmanorama claimed that, “In some schools, practical classes are being held. Practical exams will be arranged in schools. However, as practical exams cannot be conducted in the other institutions, other methods to test the practical knowledge of students will be employed.”
To assist students regarding this issue and to clarify all their doubts, the Union Education Minister, Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank has declared to go ‘Live’ through his social media along with other stakeholders. He will be addressing the students regarding their issues about CBSE Board exams 2021 as well as NEET and JEE 2021. Pokhriyal has aged students, teachers and parents to freely share their concerns regarding this issue before 10th December 2020.
