The petition was filed by 15 students from different states to cancel offline board exams of ICSE, CBSE and NIOS(National Institute of Open Schooling) and other state boards on February 23rd at 2.30pm. The students who filed the petitioner also plead that there should be an alternative way instead of written exams. But the petition was not entertained by the supreme court and it was cancelled.
The CBSE and ICSE and other state boards exams were conducted in two terms. First term exams are already conducted by the boards but the results are not out yet. Many national and state boards have already given the dates for the second term exams which will be conducted offline. As of now CBSE second term class 10 and 12 board exams will begin from 26 April, 2022 but they haven’t released any timetable and CISCE on 14th february announced that the board exam will begin from the last week of April, 2022 even though they haven’t released the timetable. By the government decision the students are not satisfied but all the boards are tensed about their future.
