During a recent televised question and answer session, the HRD minister, Mr. Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank stated that all the pending exams for CBSE class 10th and 12th students would be conducted in the schools in which the students have been enrolled. This is being done to ensure that the students need not travel a lot for the exams. He further added that during the exams, precautions would be necessary and social distancing measures need to be observed strictly.
The HRD Minister further stated that the process for evaluation of the answer sheets for class 10th and 12th students has already been started by the CBSE. The evaluation of the answer sheets for pending exams will be held concurrently with that of the previously held exams. He stated that there are plans to announce the final results for the class 10th and 12th students by the end of July 2020. This will require some doing on the part of the evaluation centers as the exams will conclude only by 15th July 2020.

CBSE Results 2020: HRD Minister Explains The Plans For New Academic Session
The HRD Minister quoted that the new academic session for all the students who clear the final exams will be held under strict security measures. He stated, “There are 33 crore students and including parents, it becomes 99 crore, and all of these are curious about when will school reopen and how will these function. We have yet to decide on the reopening dates but have asked NCERT to create a framework on how to reopen the education institutes. UGC is also creating a framework for higher education institutes. The health of students is our top priority.”
He also added that “The first stage is to provide online education. NCERT has in the meanwhile created an alternative framework to ensure a standardized, balanced, and quality education for students. We are making all efforts to ensure that neither students have to miss their education nor would the quality deteriorate.”
When the schools resume the classroom sessions, they may only be able to operate at around 30% of their original capacity. Moreover, the classes will be further divided into more sections with a modified seating arrangement.
