COVID-19 Lockdown Extended until May 3: What happens to Board, Entrance exams

Prime Minister Narendra Modi has announced that he would extend the national COVID-19 isolation lockdown until May 3. It would have a direct effect on the board exams and entrance tests that have been placed on hold as a result of government containment measures to avoid the spread of coronavirus, which has infected more than 10,000 people in the country so far.

Board examinations have been delayed in several states, including those performed by the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) and the Indian School Certificate Examination Council (CISCE).

Although several state boards agreed to release the results despite carrying out the pending tests, CBSE could only enforce the same strategy by debarring few papers that are not the "major topics." In CBSE board exams more than 30 lakh students appear and the exams are held for more than 30,000 subject combinations.So far, the very best decision the Board could take was to decide to conduct the exams for remaining "main subjects" only. When asked about the Board's decision on the pending exams and tests, CBSE official said the guidelines will be released tomorrow.
