Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) will be conducting CBSE 10th, 12th Board Exams 2021 from May 4 till June 14. Amid the sudden rise of COVID19 cases in the country, the board has made an important announcement for students who have contracted COVID19. According to an official CBSE circular, if a student has tested COVID positive, then they need not worry about the lab practical exams.
Exams for such students will be postponed and will be conducted later either in April or even after written exams are over. Such students should just be advised to take rest and be in isolation at home. Those who are not in the position to take the practical exams must note that the practical exams for that student can be held at a later date.
According to a media report, almost every day, a few students are reporting sick and are unable to appear for their exams. Both the schools and the students were under pressure about what would happen to their practical marks because the exams were progressing as per the schedule and they were being marked absent.
Earlier in the week, CBSE allowed students of classes 10, 12 to change their exam centres for the practical as well as theory exams considering the COVID19 pandemic and fresh surge in cases. The reason behind the move is that because of COVID19 pandemic, many students of classes 10, 12, along with their families, have shifted to some other city or country and therefore are unable to appear in the practical/ theory exam from the school/ exam centre where the students are registered for the board exams.
