The practical exams will take place from March 1. The data sheet was announced by the Minister of Education of the Union, Ramesh Pokhriyal, on Thursday evening, in a live video address addressed to the students.

The practical exams usually take place in January, and the written exams start in February and end in March. However, the exams are postponed in this session, given COVID-19 pandemic.

The three-month delay due to the HAS pandemic has raised concerns about the impact on college admissions, especially for those intending to study abroad.

“The exams for grades 10 and 12 will take place between May 4 and June 10. Schools will be allowed to take practical exams from March 1. The data sheet for both classes will be published soon. The results will be announced by July 15. “Pokhriyal announced. Several schools have already conducted online pre-board exams to keep students ready.

The CBSE announced earlier this month that on-board examinations in 2021 will be conducted in writing and not online. Schools across the country were closed in March to limit the spread COVID-19. They have been partially reopened in some states since October 15.

However, several states have decided to keep them closed, given the growing number of infections. This year’s exams had to be postponed to mid-March. They were subsequently canceled and the results were announced on the basis of an alternative evaluation scheme.
