Debunking the news, the govt’s fact-checking arm PIB said that CBSE has not made any such announcement. It clearly stated that the news which claimed that only those passing pre-board will get admit card is fake.

Notably, CBSE has time and again warned schools against withholding admit cards of class 10 and 12 students on any pretext, including poor performance in pre-board examinations. Citing Rule 15 of Examination Bye-Laws, the CBSE had earlier said, “In no case, the heads of affiliated schools shall detain eligible candidates from appearing at the examination. The practice has been viewed very seriously by the board and is violative of the bye-laws”.

Earlier last month, Union Education Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank had announced that the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) would conduct board exams 2021 for classes 10 and 12 physically from May 4 to June 1. However, a detailed date sheet for Class X, XII board examinations is still awaited.

Several students, on the other hand, have started a petition on change.org, in a bid to cancel the Class X, XII crucial examinations for this academic year. Expressing concerns over the conduct of the CBSE Board exam, students claimed that online classes have not been as helpful as classroom teaching. The petition also asserted that several students failed to attend the online classes due to their financial problems, lack of resources, and poor internet.
