The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE Board) has today issued to the Supreme Court that the scheduled CBSE Board pending class 10 th and 12 Board Exam 2020 stands cancelled with regard to the increasing coronavirus outbreak and the uncertainty that it dawns .
This momentous decision by the board was put forward in front of the SC on Thursday . Solicitor General Tushar Mehta is appearing for the CBSE and Central Government to propose the case while senior advocate Jaideep Gupta is representing the ICSE Board. Thousands of students, who had appeared for the CBSE Board Exam 2020 were eagerly waiting for the Board’s verdict on the pending conduction of examination, keeping in mind the problems the present conditions pose .
Due to the outbreak of coronavirus and the nationwide lockdown, the CBSE had to put on hold exams of some subjects. In the wake of the rising number of cases, students as well as parents had already appealed to the Supreme Court to cancel the pending board exams keeping in mind the health and safety concerns. It is likely to be believed that in case the situation worsens and the pending exams are cancelled, the CBSE Board is very likely to propose an alternative assessment policy before the Supreme Court.
