The report said that the information shared by the schools will be used by the CBSE to make a plan for the ‘objective criterion’ and declare the students’ Class 10 results.

The development comes as Union Education Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank had last week announced that the students appearing for Class 10 Board Exams 2021 will be promoted by the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) to the next class based on a special objective criterion.

“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,” Pokhriyal had said.

Till everything becomes clear, the CBSE Class 10 students, however, are still anxious and want to know how they will be promoted to the next class and what evaluation criteria the CBSE will lay down to allot them marks.

In the meantime, Education Minister Pokhriyal had announced on April 14 that said that the fresh dates of CBSE Class 12 exams will be announced after June 1. He had also clarified that the CBSE will issue a notice of at least 15 days before the start of the examinations so that there is no inconvenience to the students.
