The circular followed a meeting between the state education minister and Union HRD Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal on 29th April.
A suggestion to promote class 10 and 12 students without exams on the basis of internal marks was given by Delhi Deputy CM Manish Sisodia. Earlier this step was taken for students of classes 9 and 11
It was confirmed by the CBSE Secretary AnuragTripathy that class 10 exams will now be canceled.
"As the minor subjects of Class 10 Board exams were pending, it can be canceled," AnuragTripathy said.
It should be noted that the order is for canceling the exams that do not have a bearing on the careers of the students. This implies that all exams will not be canceled.
The 10 board exams will take place for the students of North Delhi, whose exams were canceled due to the violence. This will happen post lockdown.
CBSE is yet to issue a statement regarding the CBSE Class 12 board exams 2020.
It can be concluded that class 10 exams for CBSE students are canceled but only for the minor remaining subjects all over India. The students in the riot-affected areas of Delhi will appear in the exams once the lockdown is lifted.
The subjects for which the exams will be conducted are the designated “major” subjects.
As far as class 12th is concerned, the exams are not likely to be summarily canceled as they are of significance for gaining admissions in undergraduate courses.
