Is COVID-19 Vaccine mandatory for CISCE board exams 2022?

ICSE, ISC Semester 2 Exams 2022 are all set to commence from April 26, 2022. While students are still under question when will CISCE release ICSE 10th and ISC 12th semester 2 admit card 2022? There is another concern that is emerging among CISCE 10th, 12th board students. According to Maharashtra School Education Minister Varsha Gaikwad, ISC, ISCE students have received an advisory stating that vaccination is compulsory to appear for ICSE ISC board exams 2022. Latest tweets posted from Gaikwad’s official Twitter handle states, “Some students of the ISCE board have reached out to me regarding an advisory, dated Jan 4, 2022, issued by the CISCE, mandating Covid vaccination for all those appearing for the ISCE and ISC exams starting April 25.”

Another tweet reads, “Some schools are citing it saying that unvaccinated students will not be permitted to sit for the exams. This despite the Centre's affidavit in the Supreme Court  that vaccines aren't mandatory.”

“While vaccines are a life saver against Covid not allowing unvaccinated students to take exams will be discriminatory. I would therefore urge the CISCE and the @EduMinofIndia to issue an urgent clarification in this regard. My office has already contacted the CISCE on the matter,” Gaikwad added in another tweet.

According to the official schedule, ICSE board exams 2022 will commence on April 25 and ISC board exams 2022 are scheduled to commence on April 26. With just four days left for the ISC exams 2022, the CISCE board is expected to release the ICSE 10th and ISC 12th admit card anytime soon now. Students will be able to collect the class 10, 12 admit card from their respective schools.
