CBSE, ICSE cancel pending Class X, Class XII exams

Stating logistical issues and the ‘mental equilibrium’ of the parents and their wards, the CBSE has decided to cancel remaining exams of Class X and XII boards, which were to be conducted between July 1 and 15.

Following suit, ICSE also informed the Supreme Court that it is cancelling the remaining board exams for the two classes.

The apex court, however, asked for a redrafted notification in this regard for better clarity on aspects of optional exams, publication of results and new academic session, and fixed the matter on Friday for issuing orders.
