Education minister Ramesh Pokhriyal ‘Nishank’ in a tweet said the dates for Central Board of School Education (CBSE) board exams 2021 will be announced on December 31 at 6pm. “Major announcements for students & parents! I will announce the date when the exams will commence for students appearing for #CBSE board exams in 2021. Stay tuned,” Pokhriyal tweeted on Saturday.
He had earlier said that there is no proposal to commence the Class 10 and Class 12 board exams in February like every year give the upheaval caused by the Covid-19 pandemic in the academic schedule. The Ministry of Education has already clarified that the exams will be in pen and paper mode only.
The CBSE too had earlier this month announced that board exams 2021 will be conducted in written mode and not online.
