The ICSE class 10 board exams have been cancelled. Due to the increase in Covid19 cases, the students will now not be able to write the exams. Earlier there was an option of appearing for the exams in the coming months, but even that has been eliminated.
Earlier news was that the exams for both class 10 and 12 were postponed. The Council for The Indian School Certificate Examinations (CISCE) announced two options for the class 10 students. Either they will get evaluated based on the projects submitted and other alternative criteria or if they want to, they can write the exams.
But the latest update is that even this option has been withdrawn. Due to the increase in Covid19 cases, the exams for Class 10 have been cancelled. The earlier option of voluntarily appearing for the exams is not eliminated. The CISCE Secretary stated that this decision was taken keeping in mind, the safety of all the students and teachers.
