The Delhi High Court has dismissed a plea filed by parents, which was seeking the online conduction of the upcoming CBSE board exams 2021 for students of classes 10 and 12 in view of the Covid-19 pandemic situation in the country.

Further, the high court has also asked the central government and the Central Board of Secondary Education to treat the PIL filed by the parents as representation. The PIL has highlighted a lot of key points as to why the board exams should be conducted online this year.

The PIL filed in the Delhi High Court asked CBSE to do away with physical examinations this year and conduct the board examination for class 12 students in an online mode or an open book mode in view of the ongoing pandemic


The plea further mentions that though the class 12 board exams should be conducted online, the class 10 board exams should be scrapped for this year and students should be evaluated on the basis of internal assessment as a one-time measure.

The plea regarding the conduction of CBSE board exams 2021 in online mode was filed by the parents’ association of a private school after CBSE released the decision of the conduction of this year’s board exams in an offline mode.

Even though the exams are being conducted in the written mode for students of classes 10 and 12 this year, the Central Board of Secondary Education has taken several steps this year to relieve students of some of the academic pressure caused by the pandemic.
