Usually, the final exams for classes 9 and 11 are conducted in February and March. Hence, they wind up before the beginning of Board exams. However, this year, there has been an unnecessary delay due to the covid-19 pandemic and the subsequent lockdown. Schools have been unable to finish their syllabus in time. Hence, the students are not prepared for the upcoming offline exams after studying via online mode.
Various students had also requested a reduction in the syllabus. Hence, it is obvious that CBSE students are unable to complete their course in online classes. Therefore, they want an online examination as it will put less pressure on them.

Some students also suggest making the exams preferential. Hence, it can be conducted by both online and offline methods. So, the students can choose as per preference.
