The Council for Indian School Certificate Examinations (CISCE) has clarified all doubts regarding the start of the academic session 2021-22. The council stated that the academic session would commence from mid of March and the first week of June. The council has stated that the exams will not begin as per the usual schedule because of the pandemic situation and elections in 5 states.
CISCE mentioned that the dates and schedule would be declared later on the official website at the appropriate timing. The council has decided to start the academic session as per the previous year’s schedule. There was a query regarding the academic sessions since the exam dates were not finalized. On this, the council stated that the query is unrelated to all school principals.
