CBSE Board Maybe Postponed 2021

CBSE Board Exam 2021 Cancellation Update: In view of the second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Union Education Ministry and the CBSE Board may consider postponing the upcoming CBSE 10th and 12th Exams 2021, as per recent media reports. Sources have stated that canceling Board Exams, as demanded by students, is completely out of the question and not a feasible option.

Review Meeting Held on Monday: The Union Education Ministry and the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) held on Monday, April 12th, according to a report published by a leading media agency, to discuss and consider several aspects related to the conduct of the upcoming board exams. Senior officials from both sides attended the meeting, which focused on the logistical challenges as well as the safety of the students and teachers involved in the examination process. Despite extensive deliberation, the meeting remains inconclusive, and no definitive decision has yet been taken.

Cancellation Ruled Out: One of the most important takeaways from Monday's meeting was that officials from the Education Ministry and the CBSE decided that cancelling the upcoming CBSE was not an option. In fact, sources with access to important information say there are no plans to cancel board exams. The CBSE Board Exam 2021 is scheduled to take place in May 2021, as per the current schedule; however, in view of the rapidly increasing COVID-19 cases, the exam may be postponed until a later date when the pandemic has been brought under control.

Rising Demand for Cancellation of Board Exams: The meeting between the Education Ministry and the CBSE comes in the wake of a rising community outcry to cancel CBSE Board Exams 2021 for both Class 10 and 12 students, which has recently gained popular backing. In light of the COVID-19 2nd Wave, Congress General Secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra and Congress MP from Wayanad Rahul Gandhi backed student demands to cancel the exam. Today, on the 13th of April, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has also responded to the Education Ministry, requesting that the board exams be cancelled, as they pose a serious threat to students' health and safety and may result in a larger pandemic outbreak.
