In the wake of rising coronavirus cases across the country and considering the safety of the students as the exams are around the corner, the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has issued a notice for students who tested positive for the virus. As per the notice, students who tested positive for the virus, need not worry about the practical exams in the laboratory as practical exams for such students will either be postponed and can be held in April or even after written exams are over.
As per the CBSE circular, such COVID-infected students should be advised to take rest and be in self-isolation at home. This decision by the board will be a relief for parents and students.
The announcement from the CBSE is a relief for the parents and students and also to number of schools as they were under pressure about what would happen to their practical marks because the exams were progressing as per the schedule and they were being marked absent.
Recently, the CBSE allowed the students of classes 10, 12 who are appearing for the board exams, to change their exam centres for the practical as well as theory exams considering the COVID-19 pandemic and fresh surge in cases.
