No Cancellation Of Class X and XII Compartment Examination: CBSE Board
New Delhi: The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) said that compartment examinations for Classes X and XII will not be cancelled and will begin from September 22 to 29.
Dr. Sanyam Bhardwaj, the Controller of Examinations, said in a conversation with India TV that the examinations cannot be cancelled because that will eliminate the chance of those students who want to appear in the exam.
He further said that the CBSE gives three chances to Class X and XII students to appear in the compartment exam. “If any candidate is not willing to avail the first chance of compartment scheduled in September 2020 because of any reasons, they may avail the second or third chance. The conduct of compartment exams is necessary for the students who wish to appear and avail the first chance of compartment. Accordingly, Compartment exams cannot be cancelled as this will eliminate the opportunity of appearing in compartment exams for the students who wish to do so,” he told India TV.
Dr. Sanyam Bhardwaj said that as far as the coronavirus pandemic is concerned, the board has made all the necessary arrangements and circulated health guidelines to all examination centres. “These schools were centres for NEET exams, the same schools are now being used for holding Compartment exams. We are very confident that we would be able to hold the exams very safely,” he said.
