NEW DELHI: Pending CBSE board exams will likely take place at May-end if lockdown is not extended beyond May 3. CBSE has informed schools to be ready in case such a scenario occurs.
"If the MHA grants permission and the lockdown is lifted by 3 May, we will start mobilising our resources and get done with the evaluation and pending exams. In the scenario that the lockdown is not lifted on May 3, we will have to wait for the next date,” informed CBSE exam controller Sanyam Bhardwaj.
Prime Minister Modi has urged people to follow lockdown measures until May 3.
“Friends, keeping all the suggestions in mind, it has been decided that the lockdown in India will have to be extended till 3rd May. That means until 3rd May, each and every one of us, will have to remain in the lockdown. During this time, we must continue maintaining discipline in the way we have been doing till now,” he said during his address to the nation.
“Therefore, we have to be very vigilant about hot-spots. We will have to keep a close and strict watch on the places which run the risk of becoming hot-spots. The creation of new hot-spots will further challenge our hard work and penance. Hence, let us extend the strictness and austerity in the fight against Corona for the upcoming one week,” he added.
The lockdown was about to end on April 14.
