As soon as the Minister announces the CBSE Board exam dates 2021, a detailed Date Sheet will be available on cbse.nic.in the official website. Later, CBSE will release a separate Date Sheet for theory and practical exams. In his previous live sessions, the Union Education Minister stated that the online exams are not possible now, considering the connectivity issues for the CBSE schools situated in rural areas.
The educational institutions around the country were closed since March 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the subsequent lockdowns. Therefore the online mode was the only way to the inflow of education. Despite everything, many students faced many challenges owing to connectivity problems.
Therefore, the authorities decided to reduce the syllabus for CBSE board exam 2021. Recently, CBSE Controller of Examinations, Dr Sanyam Bhardwaj, conducted a meeting with some Principals of CBSE schools and announced that practical exams would be held in school labs as per previous year’s trends. However, practicals will not be held in O-Labs, as per the Times Now News report.
