Sisodia took to Twitter to post a series of tweets to submit his proposals after meeting HRD Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal. He wrote, “It’s not possible to hold the remaining CBSE Class 10 and 12 exams now. Therefore, students should be promoted based on internal marks the same way Class 9 and Class 11 students were passed.”

Sisodia also added that at least 30% syllabus should be removed from the next academic year and the competitive exams such as JEE, NEET and other entrance exams for higher education should be held based on the reduced syllabus.”

Earlier, the board had released a detailed FAQ in light of several misleading reports over the dates of the CBSE exam and result dates

According to some reports, CBSE’s Controller of Examination Dr. Sanyam Bhardwaj had also spoken to principals of at least 100 schools via video conference to seek their opinion on the way forward. Topics discussed by Bhardwaj included a road map to complete the remaining exams and how and when to start the evaluation process of the exams already held. The current lockdown has also cast uncertainty on the CBSE academic year. Bhardwaj is believed to have discussed the issue with principals on how the board intends to cover the lost time due to the global coronavirus pandemic.
