CBSE Class 10th and 12th Board Exam Results: In a massive announcement, the government of India on Thursday informed the Supreme Court that all pending exams of Class 12 had been cancelled in view of the COVID-19 pandemic. Solicitor General Tushar Mehta told the top court that the CBSE may conduct examinations when conditions become conducive. Mehta also told the Supreme Court that a scheme had been set up where Class 12 students will be assessed on the basis of the last three exams. Students will have the option to opt for these exams to be conducted later. The results will be announced on its official website cbse.nic.in. Earlier, the remaining exams were scheduled to be held from 1 July till 15 July.
The Supreme Court bench, according to Livelaw, asked, “You’re giving an option to students to appear in the exam?” To which Mehta replied, “They can adopt an assessment basis or partake the exam. The examination will be conducted as soon as the conditions are conducive.”
