The interaction between Union Education Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal and teachers has confirmed that the 10th and 12th CBSE board exams will be conducted offline. This is also confirmed that the exams will only be held after February.
The dates now cannot be exactly declared because of the dynamic situation of the coronavirus. Th e meeting was going to be held on 17th December but got postponed due to some reasons to 22nd December.
The question paper might also be a lot different this year. The minister answered many questions too. One person asked, “when the classes are being held online, why can’t exams are held online?” Answering him, the minister said, that there still is a small percentage of students who have not got equal access to education. While we have used unique methods to teach students but having such methods for exams might not be fair. We need a laptop and stable internet and electricity for each student which is a challenge.”
