On April 1, the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) announced that it will re-conduct board examinations of class 10 (only northeast Delhi) and 12 students (pan-India) that were to be held between March 19-31 in view of the coronavirus outbreak and countrywide lockdown.

The Board will conduct examinations for only 29 main subjects that will be required for promotion and may be crucial for admissions in higher educational institutions.

Meanwhile, students from class 1 to 8 will be promoted to the next grade.

“In view of the current situation due to COVID-19, I have advised CBSE to promote all students studying in classes I-VIII to the next class/grade,” said Human Resource Development minister Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank.

Students of classes 9 and 11 will be promoted on the basis of internal assessments of schools including project work, periodic tests, term exams, etc. conducted so far. If a student is unable to clear the assessments, he/she may be given a chance of appearing in school-based tests.
