The ICSE Class 10 board examinations have been cancelled due to the “worsening situation” of the coronavirus pandemic, the board said today days after it had made the exam optional.
The Council for the Indian School Certificate Examinations (CISCE) board had just days ago postponed its Class 10 and 12 examinations after a nationwide Covid surge and requests from parents and students made them rethink.
The board had said that new dates for ISC Class 12 examinations will be announced in June. While exams be held for Class 12 students later, Class 10 students were allowed to opt out.
The board today cancelled the examination as the country records grim records and unprecedented spike in cases in the second and more deadly wave of Covid. Today is the sixth consecutive day India recorded over 2 lakh cases.
