Steps taken by CBSE Board to conduct exams
Even though the exams are being conducted in the written mode for students of classes 10 and 12 this year, the Central Board of Secondary Education has taken several steps this year to relieve students of some of the academic pressure caused by the pandemic.
CBSE had announced earlier that the syllabus of the board exams will be reduced by 30 percent this year for both the classes to help them cope with their studies amid the pandemic. The conduction of online classes had made it difficult for schools to complete the syllabus.
CBSE has also changed the examination paper pattern and marking scheme for this year’s board exams for the benefit of the students. The dates of the board exams have also been pushed this year. The exams are set to be conducted from May 4 for both the classes.
Students of classes 10 and 12 have taken to social media and pushing for the cancellation of the CBSE board exams 2021 this year due to the conduction of online classes, which were not accessible by all students due to economic backgrounds.
