CBSE Class 12: Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) is likely to clear Class 12 students without any further examination due to the ongoing coronavirus crisis. According to reports, the Board may allow its students of Class 12th to graduate under a special marking procedure. However, it will offer the students to appear in an examination on a later date to improve their performance or marks. At present, about 19 states and union territories have completed the Board exams for students of Intermediate or Class 12th including Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, Telangana, Kerala, Jharkhand, Chhattisgarh, Tamil Nadu and Karnataka.
CBSE is likely to conduct the Board exams for Class 12th in the month of July or instead come up with an alternate plan to promote the students. Students who aren't satisfied with their marks or results may opt for the pen-and-paper based exam, which is likely to be conducted by the Board later. According to reports, sources close to the government have revealed that the current COVID-19 situation and rising number of Coronavirus cases will not allow the Board to conduct any examination from July 1 to July 15, 2020. But, at the same time, the future of the Class 12th students could be at stake as they will be at a disadvantage for admission to higher education in other institutions.
Meanwhile, reports reveal that CBSE in two meetings with the HRD Ministry has discussed the plan this week. The Board is currently working on the alternative evaluation procedure to clear the results for Class 12th students. CBSE is expected to issue an official notification on its website regarding the same. CBSE Class 12th pending exams for the core subjects include — Sociology, Business Studies, Hindi (Core), Hindi (Elective), Geography, Home Science, Computer Science (Old & New), Information Practice (Old & New), Information Technology and Bio-Technology.
