CBSE to conduct class 10 and 12 exams only for 29 main subjects

The Coronavirus outbreak has pushed the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) to reconsider conducting Class 10 and 12 board exams and to restrict the exams only to 29 main subjects that are considered essential for promotion.

For the rest of the subjects, the Board will not hold examinations; the instructions for marking/assessment in all such cases shall be separately issued by the Board.

In a Press Note dated April 1, 2020, CBSE has said that all students studying in classes 1 to 8 may be promoted to the
next class/grade.

The Press Note further states that:

  • CBSE will conduct examinations for only main subjects that will be required for promotion and may be crucial for admissions in higher educational institutions.
  • For the rest of the subjects, the Board will not hold examinations; the instructions for marking/assessment in all such cases shall be separately issued by the Board.
  • ┬áTherefore, as and when the Board is in a position to hold examinations, it shall hold examinations only 29 subjects, by giving a notice of about 10 days to all stakeholders before starting the Board examinations.
