Governmet wants to Scrap Board Exams, JEE Dates to change again
It is highly likely that Government will scrap Class 10th boards exams in Delhi and change the dates of remaining class 12 board exams, the JEE Exam and the NEET Test for medical colleges by Wednesday.
“The remaining CBSE Class 10 board exam for students in parts of Delhi will most likely be scrapped but the Class 12 board exam is a real test for everyone. It’s much broader in scale and impacts all students across several states. Earlier, we were thinking that July will be safe but with the rising infections in cities like Delhi and Mumbai, it’s tough to hold exams in a classroom setting,” said a government official requesting anonymity.
“Authorities are exploring if CBSE Class 12 board exam can happen online in a few cities, and offline in other places where the covid-19 situation is under control. The normalization of marks and evaluation of exam papers are also on the table and a final decision needs to be taken before the government can give a definite word to the Supreme Court. The decisions are likely by Wednesday evening which will be communicated to the top court by Thursday,” said the official.
Another anonymous official said that if CBSE exams are delayed rescheduling IIT and NEET is certain, These competitive exams come after the board exams for students.
The Plea to Scrap 2020’s CBSE Exams is deferred until 25 June in Supreme Court of India.
