According to the various media reports and speculations CBSE may hold class 12 boards exams with shorter duration of just around 30 mins per exams with objective questions. Earlier, CBSE & ministry of education had provided a choice to the states government to decide whether to take exams for all subject with a lesser duration (1-1.5hr) each or exams only for some important subjects with full 3 hour duration. But many states government were against the idea of taking exams amid the Covid crisis in the country citing it’s too dangerous for the students as majority of them are under 18 and are not vaccinated.
As of now, it is expected the Ministry of Education will announce the datesheet for class 12 CBSE board exams on June 1, 2021.
According reports by AajTak CBSE has decided to take exams for a very short duration of just 30-mins with objective based questions only. However, there’s no official statement as of yet.
Meanwhile, the supreme court has adjourned the hearing of a plea to cancel the board exams till 31st May 2021.
