The government allowed 3000 schools under CBSE to open

Ministry of Home Affairs ( MHA ) has allowed 3000 schools under the CBSE ( Central Board of Secondary Education ) to start the evaluation of class 10 and class 12 board exam papers. Reports say there are around 2.5 crore answer sheets in almost 173 subjects that have to be evaluated. The evaluation is scheduled to start on Sunday, May 10.

The Home Ministry also allowed the operation of 16 regional offices of the Central Board supporting the evaluation process. Nevertheless, they are to follow the guidelines of COVID-19.

The approval for opening schools as evacuation centres was granted on Saturday, as an answer to the request made by the Union Human Resource Development Ministry.
However, this approval only permits the schools to evaluate the answer sheets of the board exams; they are forbidden from resuming their normal academic activities such as classroom teaching.

Human Resource Development Minister Ramesh Pokriyal declared that 3000 CBSE affiliated schools across India have been identified and permitted to operate as assessment centres, only for evaluation of Board exams.
The Minister has also said that the results will be declared only after the remaining board examinations have been conducted.

This news followed the Ministry’s announcement of conducting the remaining examinations between July 1 and 15, on Friday.
India is hoping to restart its new academic year in August- September after all the disruptions caused due to the pandemic. And to do so, the results of classes 10 and 12 are the deciding factors over the next years. So the Ministry has decided upon the evaluation now.
