No Quality Education, No Proper Guidance, No Proper Notes. Schools were closed most of the time. Classes were Online. How can we(students) give Offline Exam?
& why the authorities are forcing us to give Offline Exam. What’s the logic behind it!?#ModiJiSaveBoardStudent

Going by the rules, there are chances that in case of a high number of coronavirus infections the board’s second term exams might be pushed back or even canceled. When CBSE announced that it will hold two exams, in its official notice, the Board had said that if there is another wave of the covid-19 pandemic, then the final result will be computed based on term 1 exams, and internal assessment.
If this happens, it would not be the first time. In 2021, the board could not hold any exams due to the pandemic. In 2020 as well, the exams had to be stopped mid-way because of the first wave of the covid-19 pandemic. It was after huge disruptions in its examination and assessment system that CBSE had decided to go with not one but two exams for the 2022 batch.
