The Chhattisgarh Board of Secondary Education (CGBSE) is all set to conduct Class 12 board exams from today, June 1.

The Class 12 exam will be held from June 1 to June 5 and students would be conducted in an 'exam from home' pattern, wherein students would be allowed to collect question papers from specified centres, take them home and submit the answer copies.

Students will be given question papers and answer sheets and they will be required to submit the answer sheets within five days’ time.

In view of the aggressive second wave of COVID-19 pandemic in the country, the Class 10 board exams were cancelled and the Class 12 board exams scheduled in May-June were postponed.

The ICSE and CBSE board had decided to cancel the class 10 exams in order to ensure the safety of students. Thereafter, many states have followed suit and decided to cancel Class 10 examinations for their respective boards. Although several states has not yet come up with an update on Class 12 board exam, CGBSE decided to take examination route for Class 12 boards.

The Chhattisgarh Board of Secondary Education (CGBSE) had announced the Class 10 result earlier this month, on their official website-results.cg.nic.in.The marks were awarded based on the evaluation criterion decided by the state.

Meanwhile, the Supreme Court on Monday adjourned hearing of plea seeking directions to the Centre, Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) and the Council for the Indian School Certificate Examination (CISCE) to cancel the CBSE, ICSE Class XII examinations after Central government sought time till Thursday.

The Central government told the Supreme Court that it will take a final decision on the issue of conducting or cancelling class 12 CBSE, ICSE Board exam in two days and sought time till Thursday to place its decision before the court.
