CBSE, ICSE exams for classes 10, 12 cancelled

New Delhi:25/6/20: The Centre and the CBSE Thursday informed the Supreme Court that they have decided to cancel the Class X and XII examinations scheduled from July 1-15 due to the COVID-19 pandemic and they would be conducted later.

A bench headed by Justice AM Khanwilkar was apprised by the Solicitor General Tushar Mehta that a scheme has been formulated to assess the performance of class XII students on the basis of their performance in last examinations.

The top court was also informed that the students will have the liberty to opt either for the examinations, to be conducted later, or go with the assessment process based on past performance.

The court was hearing pleas seeking scrapping of remaining exams of Class XII scheduled from July 1-15 in view of an increasing number of COVID-19 cases. Even though ICSE had made appearing for the ICSE 12th exams optional for students across India, that option has now been scrapped.

The internal assessment system will be followed to declare the ICSE board exam results for classes 10 and 12 as there is no option available for students to appear for the board exams.
