In a major update regarding CBSE 2021 Board exams, Union Education Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal ‘Nishank’ on Friday (June 25) informed that the students of Class 10 and 12 who are dissatisfied with their results can appear for the optional exams in August.
Going live on Twitter, the minister said that government is well prepared to conduct the offline exams if the situation is conducive. He assured the students that they need not worry about the situation. Pokhriyal reiterated that the government's top priority is students' safety, health and future.
Speaking about the offline exams, the Education Minister further stated that he was constantly receiving a lot of messages regarding the evaluation criteria set by the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE). To clear the confusion, he said that the Board has set the evaluation criteria which have been accepted by the Supreme Court, and those unhappy with the results have an option to appear for the optional exams.
As per sources, the dates for the conduct of physical exams are likely to be released by the CBSE next month in case the Board finds the situation conducive to hold the exams.
