Because of the uncertain scenario of the COVID-19 and the feedback obtained from various stakeholders, it was decided that the CBSE class XII board exams would not happen this year.

After the centre’s decision, many states had called off their board examinations while the others said they would take a call soon. Rajasthan, Goa, Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra, Odisha, Karnataka and Uttarakhand have cancelled their class XII board exams. Haryana, too has scrapped class XII board exams this week. 

States like Assam, Tamil Nadu, Jharkhand and Punjab are yet to announce their final take on the exams.

A few states, such as Tripura, Telengana and Andhra Pradesh, are in favour of conducting the board exams and had indicated that the exams would take place when the coronavirus situation normalises.

The Karnataka Government have announced that it will go ahead with class X or SSLC examinations with only Multiple Choice Question types (MCQs)

This makes Karnataka the only state to go forward with the Class X board exams or the SSLC examinations despite the Central Board of Secondary Education(CBSE) and the Council for the Indian School Certificate Examinations(CISCE) cancelling the same due to the ongoing COVID-19 situation across the country.

Meanwhile, the SSLC examination will be held for two days. The first paper is Science, Maths, Social Science will be clubbed in one paper, and the second paper is languages. SSLC examination is scheduled to be held in the third week of July, and no one will be marked as failed in the exam, Education Minister Suresh Kumar informed.
