On June 1, Prime Minister Narendra Modi ended all speculations regarding CBSE Class 12 Board Exam 2021 when he announced the cancellation of CBSE Class 12 Board Exam 2021 due to COVID-19 situation in the country.
Days after the announcement by PM Modi, the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) instructed its affiliated schools to upload the internal assessment, including practical and viva marks, on CBSE’s official website – cbse.nic.in. The CBSE has directed all its affiliated schools across the country to submit the internal assessment, including practical and viva marks on the official website by June 28, 2021. The CBSE extended the date to submit the internal assessment marks, which will be used to prepare to CBSE Class 12 Board Exam 2021, after it was informed practical exams of some CBSE Class 12 students are pending. The CBSE also directed the schools to conduct the practical and viva test online due to the prevailing COVID-19 situation in the country.
“In subjects where the external examiner has not been appointed, the concerned school teacher of the subject will conduct the internal assessment based on the instructions given in curriculum in an online mode and upload the marks awarded at the link provided by the Board,” said CBSE in a letter sent to schools.
