The coronavirus induced lockdown from mid-march and extended multiple times has thrown the academic calendar off track across states. Several exams including Class 10 and Class 12 state board exams, Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE 2020) exams, Joint Entrance Examination Main (JEE Main 2020) for admission to engineering colleges and National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET 2020) for medical colleges in India are delayed.
NIOS has been taking various initiatives so that students’ education is not affected or slowed down due to the challenges of COVID-19 lockdown.
The remaining CBSE Class 10 and Class 12 exams are scheduled to be held from July 1 to July 15. The CBSE exams will be held only in 29 major subjects including six exams for Class 10 students of North-east Delhi.
CBSE will conduct the pending exams of Class 10 for the students of North-east Delhi only where a series of violent clashes in February had caused the examination board to postpone the board exams in that area.
The 29 major subjects, as decided by CBSE, include Home Science, Physics, Accountancy, Chemistry, Economics and Biology.
