Officials on December 2 told news agency PTI that consultations on dates for the conduct of the CBSE exams in 2021 are still underway. They also spoke on the mode of conducting the exams.

The CBSE Board exams in 2021 will be in written mode only and not online, as reported by PTI. The officials of the board also said that if students were not able to sit for practicals in classes before the exams, alternatives would be explored.

“No final decision has been taken regarding the dates for the conduct of board exams, and consultations with stakeholders are still in process. The exams, as and when they are conducted, will be in the written mode and not in an online mode. The exams will be conducted following all COVID protocols,” a senior CBSE official said.

“In case students are not able to do practicals in classes before the exams, alternatives to practical exams will have to be explored,” the official added.

The board exams that were being conducted in March had to be postponed mid-way. The exams were later cancelled, and the results were announced on the basis of an alternative assessment scheme. Competitive exams like JEE and NEET were also postponed twice this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

There have been demands for postponement of board exams to May in view of the continued closure of schools and teaching-learning activities being completely online.

The Joint Entrance Exam (JEE)-Main for admission to engineering colleges across the country is likely to be held in February instead of January, according to officials. The rising number of COVID-19 cases and engineering admission for this year still being underway are among the reasons behind authorities contemplating the move.

The JEE-Main, which is the national-level competitive test for admission to various undergraduate engineering and architecture courses, is conducted twice a year–January and April. However, due to the COVID-19 situation, the April exam was postponed twice and conducted in September.
