'No CBSE Board Exams Till February 2021'- Union Education Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal

Union Education Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal ‘Nishank’ today said that the coming CBSE board exams will not be held until February 2021. A decision on when to start the exams will be taken by the government later, he added.
 

Union Education Minister today conducted a webinar to interact with teachers across the country. “Practical examinations for the board exams begin in January and the written tests take place in February and March. But, based on the present conditions, holding the examination in January or February is not possible. That has been decided. We will hold consultations after this and take a decision,” the minister said responding to questions from teachers.
 The minister said conducting online examinations continued to be a challenge due to insufficient access to computers and laptops to a large section of students. He disagreed with a suggestion to do away with the examination altogether as it could raise doubts over the competence of a large group of students.

We cannot allow Covid-19 to impact students and have them labelled as Covid-era students who passed without clearing any exams,” the minister said.
