PUBLISH DATE 20th April 2021

The Council for Indian School Certification Examination (CISCE) has announced to cancel ICSE class 10 board examinations in the wake of COVID-19 situation.

The status of exams for class 12 remains the same as the previous order. Class 12 Exam will be conducted through offline mode at a later date.

In an official circular issued by Gerry Arathoon, the chief executive and secretary of the Council for the Indian School Certificate Examinations, the authorities said, "Given the present worsening situation of the Covid-19 pandemic in the country, the CISCE has decided to cancel the ICSE (Class X) 2021 Examination. The options given in the earlier circular dated 16th April 2021 now stands withdrawn. The safety and wellbeing of our students and teaching faculty is our topmost priority and of paramount interest."

Initially, the board had announced to conduct class 10 exams from May 5 while the exams for class 12 were scheduled tp commence from April 8 respectively. However, noticing the rise in number of Coronavirus cases across country, the council last week postponed the ICSE Class 10th and ISC Class 12th examinations dates. 

While making the announcement, CISCE said that the Covid situation will be closely monitored and the deferment of the ICSE and ISC 2021 examinations will be reviewed and a final decision on the conduct of the examinations will be taken by the first week of June 2021. 

In its official notice issued on April 16, the board had said that While the ISC (Class 12) examination will be conducted at a later date, the candidates for the ICSE (Class 10) examination will be given the following options: to write the offline examination along with the Class 12 candidates or not to write the offline examination.

Usually, the CICSE board exams are conducted in February-March. However, the exams have been delayed this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This is in line with the decision taken by the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) on the backdrop of significantly rising cases of Coronavirus in the country.
