The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) and the Council for the Indian School Certificate Examinations (CISCE) have cancelled the pending Class 10 and Class 12 board examinations. According to the rescheduled timetable, exams were to take place from 1 July to 15 July for CBSE and from 1 July to 14 July for ICSE.

 

CBSE Class 12 students will be allowed to take their exams later when the atmosphere will be conducive. However, CISCE, the board which conducts the ICSE exam for Class 10 students and the Indian School Certificate (ISC) exam for Class 12 students, is unlikely to provide the option to take the exam later.

 

Because of the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic and with the nationwide lockdown, the CBSE and CISCE boards had to postpone a few subject examinations. Because of constant increase in the number of coronavirus cases across the country, students appearing for the board examinations and their parents had appealed to the Supreme Court to cancel the pending CBSE and ICSE Class 10 and Class 12 board examinations.

 

What will be CBSE and ICSE Board Exam 2020 Assessment Policy?

 

According to the new assessment policy, CBSE will be following a grading system. Students who had appeared for the CBSE Class 10 and CBSE Class 12 Board Exam 2020 will be assessed according to the marks obtained by them in the CBSE pre-board exams. However, an official announcement on the same is yet awaited. Similarly, CISCE will promote its students based on the internal assessment system, but the board is yet to announce details.

 

Media reports have also suggested that CBSE can use an alternative grading model which will be based on using internal assessment scores. It is also speculated that grading may be based on the marks obtained in the exams already conducted.

 

The Supreme Court had sought clarification on the new academic year and stated that the new academic year can start only in September if the board exam results were announced in August. CBSE said that students can apply for basic assessment and that the board exam results will be announced in mid-August. The board also said that the academic year will be shifted for the 2020-21 session.
