CBSE 10th student may opt exam: Minister of Human Resource Development (HRD) Ramesh Pokhriyal on Friday said that CBSE students of class X may opt for taking the exam if they are not satisfied by the result which will be declared on July 15.
Pokhriyal said,” As the remaining class 10 and 12 CBSE exams, which were earlier rescheduled to be held between July 1 to July 15 in view of the COVID-19 pandemic, have been canceled, the CBSE has decided to declare the result on July 15.”
He gave his blessing to the student for their future and said that they utilize this time in a good manner and without any pressure.
“Our first priority to save the lives of children and then education. I would like to wish a bright future for the students. Utilize this time in a good way and feel no pressure,” he said.
Students will be given the choice to decide if they want their results based on the methodology of assessment as decided by #CBSE or choose to write the exams again. I would like to reiterate that the health of students, parents, and teachers is our prime concern- ‘Pokhriyal tweeted’.
“However the result will be calculated on the exams which have already been given but the students who think they could have done better if they had taken exams, they may opt for giving exams. This option will be open for the student who has not taken exams for all the subjects,” added Pokhriyal.
The CBSE and ICSE on June 25 told the apex court that the remaining class 10 and 12 CBSE exams, which were earlier rescheduled to be held between July 1 to July 15 in view of the COVID-19 pandemic, have been canceled.
Earlier in the day, The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) and the Indian Certificate of Secondary Education (ICSE) submitted before the Supreme Court that the board examination results will be declared by July 15.
ICSE, on the other hand, told the top court that they might give an option to the class 10 students to write the exams at a later stage as well.
