With several reports doing the rounds that the CBSE exams for Class 12 are likely to be cancelled, the The Central Board of Secondary Education on Friday informed that they have not taken an official decision on the future of the exams yet.

Ever since the central government announced the cancellation of the Class 10 CBSE board examinations due to the Covid-19 pandemic, several students and parents have demanded the cancellation of Class 12 exams as well. Responsible to a question about the possibility of the exams being cancelled, a senior CBSE official informed a news agency, "It is clarified that no such decision (cancellation of exams) has been taken regarding class 12 board examination, as being speculated. Any decision taken in this matter will be officially communicated to the public."

The Indian government, on April 14, announced the postponement of the Class 12 exams and cancellation of Class 10 exams amid rising cases of Covid-19 in the country. "The class 12 exams have been postponed and a review of the situation will be done after June 1. Students will be given at least a 15-day notice before the exams are conducted," a board official had stated.
