The Union Education Minister, Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank’s address to the teachers regarding Board Exam 2021 has been postponed to 22 December 2020. The live session was earlier scheduled for 17 December 2020 to answer multiple queries from teachers regarding the class 12 board exams.
Since the two Central Boards, i.e., CISCE and CBSE have reduced their syllabus considerably, a question that has always been coming up is how the reduction of the syllabus will impact the various entrance exams and paper patterns. Since most entrance exams are based on the class 12 board syllabus, this issue has been a constant worry to many.
Therefore, to answer all these primordial queries especially about the feasibility of board exams considering syllabus reduction, the Union Education Minister, Dr Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank, will again hold a live stream on 22 December 2020. Pokhriyal asked the teachers to tweet their queries using the #EducationMinisterGoesLive on his official Twitter handle. Regarding the postponement of the live session, he tweeted,
“Teachers, I am looking forward to having an insightful interaction with you all on Dec 22 at 4 PM. Please share your queries/suggestions with me using #EducationMinisterGoesLive.”
Earlier, Pokhriyal covered all the crucial questions of the students regarding the conduct and pattern of the various entrance examinations, including JEE and NEET. He also announced that the exams would not be cancelled, but the security of the students is the utmost priority. On 16 December 2020, the Union Education Minister came live at 6 PM IST to announce the dates for JEE Main 2021 which will be held in four sessions starting February onwards.
