Earlier in the morning, Nishank had said that there was uncertainty about the remaining examinations of CBSE due to the Coronavirus crisis. Today, to remove this uncertainty and in view of the eagerness of the students, we are releasing the datesheet of class 10 and class 12 examination at 5 pm.
The ministry had announced last week that the remaining examinations of CBSE class 10th and 12th would be held during July 1 to 15, which was postponed in view of Covid-19. The remaining examinations of class 12 will be held in the entire country. But the pending examinations of class 10 will be held only in North East Delhi, which was affected due to the law and order situation.
Along with this, on the other hand, the Ministry has given retrospective recognition to teacher education courses conducted without approval from the National Council for Teacher Education. This move of the ministry will provide relief to more than 13,000 students and teachers teaching more than 17,000. These programs were being run without any formal recognition from the National Council for Teacher Education (NCTE)
New CBSE Chief Manoj Ahuja Has Taken Charge Amidst Challenges
IAS officer Manoj Ahuja has recently been appointed as the new chairman of CBSE. He succeeded IAS Anita Karwal, who was appointed as Secretary of the Department of School Education and Literacy of the Ministry of Human Resource Development in April last week.
This information has been given by CBSE through press release. CBSE has said in a statement that the Central Board of Secondary Education has appointed Manoj Ahuja as its new chairman. Manoj Ahuja is a 1990 batch IAS officer of Odisha cadre. Significantly, at present, the third phase of lockdown is going on in the country to protect against the coronavirus, which is till May 17. Schools, colleges and higher educational institutions are closed due to the lockdown.
In such a situation, conducting the remaining examinations of class X and XII of the board will prove to be the biggest challenge before the new chairman of CBSE, Manoj Ahuja. These exams were postponed as soon as the lockdown took place. Explain that this year more than 30 lakh students have registered for board exams and the board has to complete some important exams of class 12.
