ICSE, ISC 10th Board Exams Postponed
ICSE, ISC Board Exams 2021 Postponed: In the wake of an increase in COVID-19 cases across the country, the Council for the Indian School Certificate Examinations (CISCE) postponed Class 10 (ICSE) and Class 12 (ISC) board exams until 2021 on April 16. Because of the coronavirus pandemic, the CISCE exams were canceled again this year, and students were assessed based on "internal assessment." The education board told the Supreme Court (SC) last year that students would not be given the option of re-examination and would instead be evaluated solely on the basis of internal assessment.
According to the scheme, students were assessed on the basis of their best three percentage marks in subjects for which board exams were taken, as well as the results of their internal assessments and project work. If students do not appear for the exams, their results will be calculated using criteria that the board will create and announce later. The CISCE would develop an unbiased criteria when preparing the results of such candidates, in light of the ICSE (Class 10) candidates opting for the second alternative, according to the council.
The ICSE Class 10 and ISC Class 12 tests, which were scheduled to begin on May 4, have been postponed due to a nationwide outbreak of coronavirus, according to Gerry Arathoon, the CISCE's chief executive and secretary. "We'll keep a close monitor on the situation and review it in the first week of June before making a final decision on how the examination should be conducted," he said. "While Class 12 exams will be conducted later, Class 10 students will have the option of taking offline exams later and being evaluated on the basis of equal and unbiased criteria developed by the board," Mr. Arathoon explained.
Earlier this week, the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) cancelled Class 10 board exams and postponed Class 12 board exams. Several state boards have also decided to delay or cancel their board exams.
According to data updated on Friday by the Union Health Ministry, India added a record 2,17,353 new coronavirus infections in a single day, bringing the total number of COVID-19 cases to 1,42,91,917, with active cases surpassing the 15-lakh mark.
