The NIOS (National Institute of Open Learning) has canceled the board exams for the students of class 10 and 12. These board exams were scheduled for March 2020 but they were never conducted because of the coronavirus outbreak in the country.
While announcing this, the HRD Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank had said that they have kept the health and safety of the students in mind while canceling the exams of NIOS. The MHRD and the Government of India are working for the welfare of the students.
The exams of NIOS were supposed to begin from March 24 and to end on April 24. But because of the announcement of the lockdown, the exams were getting postponed. The exams were rescheduled to July 17.
The experimental examinations were also halted halfway. The committee of NIOS will evaluate the students based on the evaluation plan. The results are supposed to be calculated on the past performances, tutor-marked assignments and the practical exams.
