COVID-19 Lock-down extended by May 3rd Doubts over Exams & Entrance Tests
| Education Jagat - 16 Apr 2020

Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced extending the Nationwide lockdown for COVID-19 containment till May 3. This will have a direct impact on the board exams and entrance tests which have been put on hold due to containment measures taken by the government to stop the spread of the coronavirus, which has infected over 10,000 people in the country to till date.
 Board exams in many states and those conducted by the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) and Council for the Indian School Certificate Examinations (CISCE) have been postponed.
 While many state boards have decided to release the results without conducting the pending exams, CBSE could only implement the same strategy by debarring few papers which are not the “main subjects”. Over 30 lakh students appear for CBSE board exams and the exams are held for over 30,000 subject combinations. So far, the very best decision the Board could take was to decide to conduct the exams for remaining “main subjects” only.
