Students appearing in the ICSE and ISC exams can skip the exam if they want. In this regard, the Indian School Certificate Examination (CICSE) Board has told the Mumbai High Court that if a student wants to be absent from the ICSE and ISC Board exams, such students will be evaluated on the basis of pre-board and internal examinations. The exams postponed due to the lockdown were scheduled to be held in July. According to the new datesheet released, the 10th exam is scheduled to be held from July 2 to July 12 and the exam for class 12 from July 1 to 14.

Notice to be given by 22 June

Actually, the board said this in response to a petition filed in the court. In such a situation, if a student decides to leave the examination, then he will have to inform the board about this by 22 June. A petition filed by a student's parent sought to postpone the examination. However, the next hearing of the case will be held on Wednesday. The board has said that in the subjects for which the examinations have been conducted, the students will be evaluated according to their examinations.

The exam was earlier to be held from 27 February to 30 March

While hearing the petition filed, the court has proposed 2 options. First, conduct the exam in July as per the new schedule. Final result should be declared on the basis of performance in the second internal assessment assessment / pre-board examination. Both of these options will be worked on right now. Earlier the 10th exams were held between 27 February and 30 March, but the examinations were canceled from 19 March due to the increasing prevalence of corona epidemic. At present, 23,347 students from a total of 226 ICSE affiliated schools in Maharashtra were to appear in the Class 10 examination.
