New Delhi: In the light of the nationwide surge in Covid 19 cases, the CISCE has decided to defer the ICSE (Class X) and ISC (Class XII) board examinations scheduled to be held from May 4, 2021.
The Covid situation will be closely monitored and the deferment of the ICSE & ISC 2021 examinations will be reviewed and a final decision on the conduct of the board examinations will be taken by the 1st week of June 2021.
While the ISC (Class XII) examination will be conducted at a later date, the candidates for the ICSE (Class X) examination will be given the following options:
i. to write the offline examination, along with the Class XII candidates
ii. not to write the offline examination.
In view of the ICSE (Class X) candidates opting for the second option, the CISCE will develop a fair and an unbiased criterion while preparing the results of such candidates.
