CBSE Class 12 Board Exam 2021: Majority States In Favour Of Short-Duration Exams!
CBSE Class 12 Board Exam 2021 Update: Many states are in favour of conducting papers with a format that involves a shorter duration (i.e. Multiple choice questions etc.). However, three states, Delhi, Punjab and West Bengal opposed the decision of conducting exams immediately. These states proposed that students and teachers must be vaccinated before holding exams. A high-level meeting was held on 23rd May 2021 and states were asked to submit their stand and suggestions by 25th May 2021. A final is expected to be announced soon by Union Education Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal 'Nishank'. Here is the tweet from the education minister.
I also take this opportunity to thank my Cabinet colleagues Shri @PrakashJavdekar Ji, Smt. @smritiirani Ji and Minister of State Shri @SanjayDhotreMP Ji for being part of this vital process. pic.twitter.com/2IWsKt8IwQ— Dr. Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank (@DrRPNishank) May 23, 2021
Two options were suggested during a high-level meeting on 23rd June:
- The first option was to conduct papers for 19 important subjects from August 1 & the assessment of other subjects should be done on papers already conducted (i.e., internal exams & pre-board).
- The second option was to conduct exams in 2 phases. i.e., from July 15 to August 1 & from August 5 to August 26. States, where the condition is under control, can conduct papers in the first phase. The rest of the states can conduct the papers in the next phase.
The final decision regarding CBSE 12th board exams 2021 is expected to be announced on 1st June 2021.
