NIOS Class 10th Exams Cancelled, Class 12th Postponed
The NIOS public exam for senior secondary and vocational courses, which was scheduled for June 2021, has also been postponed until further notice. The National Institute of Open Schooling (NIOS) has agreed to cancel the public exam in theory and practice of secondary courses due to the current situation in the country with the Covid 19 pandemic. The institute has announced that the Public Examinations in Theory and Practical of senior secondary and vocational courses, which were scheduled for June 2021, have been postponed until further notice.
Due to the COVID-19 outbreak in the region, the National Institute of Open Schooling (NIOS) Wednesday cancelled Class 10 board examinations and postponed Class 12 board examinations. The NIOS Class 10 board exams were set to take place in June.
NIOS Notice: "The Public Exam in Theory & Practical of Secondary Courses scheduled in June 2021 is hereby cancelled," NIOS said in an official note. "The Public Exam in Theory & Practical of Senior Secondary & Vocational Courses scheduled in June 2021 is hereby postponed until further order." On June 20, the NIOS will conduct an analysis of the situation. The notice in this regard must be sent out 15 days prior to the actual date of the exams.
After some students demanded a postponement due to the Covid-19 situation, the decision was made. Class 12 exams have already been postponed and class 10 exams have been cancelled by the CBSE, CISCE, and several other state boards.
“NIOS will formulate appropriate standards for evaluation and findings will be prepared in the best interest of learners,” according to the official note. Any learner who is dissatisfied with the calculated result will be required to sit for public exams or on-demand examinations if and when the situation permits.”
Class 10 NIOS: For students in class 10, the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIOS) will develop "suitable criteria for evaluation" and prepare the results. Since NIO is an open school with classes delivered through distance learning, the continuous evaluation model used by other boards will not be applicable. According to NIOs, it would choose an evaluation method that is in the "best interests of learners."
NIOS Information: NIOS, formerly known as the National Open School, was founded as an independent organisation by the Union Human Resource Development Ministry in 1989. In support of Prime Minister Narendra Modi's Digital India initiative, a two-year diploma course in elementary education was examined.
