Results of class 10 ICSE will be based on a fair and an unbiased criterion, after ICSE cancels class 10 board exams
Due to the massive increase in coronavirus cases, the Indian Certificate of Secondary Education (ICSE) has cancelled the Class 10 board examinations on Tuesday.
The schools that are affiliated with the Council for the Indian School Certificate Examinations have been advised to begin admissions for class 11 and schedule an online class with ISC 2023 syllabus.
The exams of class 12 will be conducted on a later date online.
The exams for ICSE of class 10 were supposed to happen between May 5 to June 7 and the class 12 exams were supposed to be held between May 5 and June 16.
The order to postpone the board exams came 3 days ago due to the growing Covid-19 infections in the country. The board said that the decision of conducting the exam will be taken after the first week of June.
The exams of class 10 were cancelled on Tuesday. The council said that the decision was taken keeping in mind the safety of the teaching staff and the students.
“All CISCE affiliated schools (having the ISC Section) are hereby advised to begin the admission process for Class XI, if not already started,” the CISCE circular, signed by the council’s chief executive and secretary Gerry Arathoon, stated.
“In addition, schools should prepare a schedule to begin online classes for the Class XI students at the earliest. The syllabus to be followed is the ISC 2023 syllabus,” the circular added.
The status of class 12th ISC 2021 exams remains the same, the board said. The CISCE said that it is committed to devising “a fair and an unbiased criterion” regarding the result on which class 10th exams will be held and the date of the announcement of the result will be declared later, the council said in the letter sent to the heads of all schools presenting candidates for the ICSE and the ISC 2021 examinations.
