"CBSE and ICSE Board Exams must be Postponed" says Maharashtra Government

With increasing cases in Maharashtra, the State Government wants the CBSE and ICSE board to postpone their exams.

By Topperlearning Expert 09th Jun, 2020 11:37 am

In what may seem as a relief to a lot of worried parents in Maharashtra, the state government has asked the CBSE and ICSE Boards to either defer the exams or cancel it all together. Maharashtra is one of worst hit states in the country and conducting exams and gathering people may just act as a very risky boomerang. The nation has been in lockdown due to COVID-19 since March 2020 and the cases in Maharashtra especially are on the rise.

 

After several discussions and postponements both CBSE and ICSE boards had finally decided to continue with the exams in July 2020, albeit, with several social distancing rules. The boards had also given students the option to change the centres, in case they were stuck somewhere else in the country. ICSE papers would be conducted between July 2 and 12 whilst ISC exams between July 1 and 14. Similarly, CBSE also announced that all the remaining papers would be conducted between July 1 and July 15.

 

The Maharashtra government has asked the boards to consider internal marks for the students of Class 10 and 12. A senior official from the ICSE expressed his apprehension regarding this directive and said, “We have already told students in a circular released last month that in a situation wherein they cannot write the exam, they can send a representation through the school and the board would allow them to appear for it at the time of compartmental exams conducted at a later date. If internal exam marks are considered, many parents would object to it again.”

 

The state government meanwhile has asked the bodies to provide data of the students who have appeared for both Class 10 and Class 12 exams and would conduct a virtual meeting with the heads of ICSE and CBSE regarding the cancellation.

 

The state education department has said that it would plan the upcoming first-year junior college admissions depending on the decision of the two boards. Earlier, the SSC board and the IGCSE board had cancelled their remaining exams as well after looking at the rising cases.
