Most of the state boards have already either postponed or cancelled their board exams in view of the rising number of coronavirus cases. Recently, the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) and Council for The Indian School Certificate Examinations (CISCE) have also cancelled the class 10th board exams and had postponed the class 12th board exams in light of the pandemic.
Board exam results for Class 10th will be based on exams conducted in Class 9th & 10th (internal marks). We will try to declare the results by the end of June.
