“The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) is yet to take a decision on the dates for conducting board examinations including practical. In case students are not able to do practical in classes before the examinations, alternatives to practical examinations will be explored,” he had said.
The CBSE had earlier this month announced that board exams in 2021 will be conducted in written mode and not online.
