The CBSE board exam 2021 will not be cancelled and the exam will be most likely held in July like last year amidst Covid protocols, sources confirmed the decision taken at the high-level meeting today between the Centre and the states which is now over.
Education Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal will share more information about format and also the CBSE Class 12 board exam dates on June 1.
The option of holding CBSE board exams in 19 major subjects was discussed and found support from many states. For other subjects, a different way will be found for evaluation such as internal assessments.
Another option has been discussed at the meeting as well -- holding shorter 90-minute exams for major subjects in schools.
