After a high-level meeting between PM Narendra Modi, the Education Minister & top officials today (14 April 2021) CBSE cancelled class 10th Board Exams and postponed class 12th Exam due to surge in covid- 19 cases across the country.  

Ministry of Education said, “The Board Exams for Class Xth to be held from 4th May to June 14th, 2021 are hereby cancelled. The results of Class Xth Board will be prepared on the basis of an objective criterion to be developed by the Board. Any candidate who is not satisfied with the marks allocated to him/her on this basis will be given an opportunity to sit in an exam as and when the conditions are conducive to hold the exams”.
