CBSE Board exams 2021 date sheet: The one thing that each and every student and parent wants to know is when are the CBSE Board Exams 2021 for class 10 and Class 12 going to be held? Every year, they used to be held in March. However, even in 2020, they were interrupted because of the Covid-19 pandemic and the lockdown that was imposed by the government.
Many exams were cancelled at that time causing a crisis and these had to be retaken or other alternatives found. The pandemic even affected the admission process at many universities and even caused the postponement of a number of important competitive examinations. Unfortunately, students have lost out on their studies since then as schools have not been reopened. Online classes are being carried on but they are not the same as having a teacher teaching the class in the presence of students.
There is virtually no interaction and questions that students used to ask earlier are now almost never done. Students also don’t have the option of directly interacting with other students. They do WhatsApp, but it is not the same thing. One thing that CBSE Class 10 and Class 12 students should do is keep an eye on official website to get latest updates, which is www.cbse.nic.in. So, to get back to our important question – Will CBSE Board exams 2021 be held in March or not?
The official line on providing CBSE Board exams 2021 date sheet is, “No compulsion to hold 2021 CBSE Board exams in March.” This was announced by Union Education Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank. IANS quoted him as saying, “There is no compulsion to conduct the exams in March. Keeping in view the coronavirus pandemic, the scheduled dates for the exam will be fixed. Practical exams will not be held clashing with the dates of any entrance exam.” In fact, the background to this statement is that parents across the country are demanding that the CBSE Board exams 2021 be postponed and then be held sometime in May, 2021.
One of the big reliefs that has been announced is that students preparing for the CBSE board exams for Class 10 and Class 12 is that there will be enough gap provided in the exams. Nishank said, “Students will be given ample time for preparation based on the new pattern on which the exam would be conducted.”
“Practical exams in the CBSE board are held at the school level. If a situation arises that the students cannot go to laboratories for practicals then it will be difficult to conduct the examination and the Central government will consider further steps to resolve the issue,” Nishank added.
Among the notable steps taken by CBSE to help students is the reduction in the syllabus by 30 percent for CBSE board exams 2021. Most importantly, the word ‘fail’ has been removed from the marksheet. That means no student would be considered as failed.
