CBSE 12th Board 2021 : CBSE Optional Exams Likely to be Conducted in August, Says Ramesh Pokhriyal, Check Highlights Of Live Chat With Students
At this crucial time when students across the country are eagerly waiting for their Board Exams Results, Union Minister of Education Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank on Friday held a session with students to clear their doubts over a number of issues related to examination and results. On Thursday, the education minister said that he will hold a live session through his social media platforms at 4 PM on Friday. Moreover, he had earlier asked students to share questions with him and he is expected to resolve queries of students in the live interaction.
However, it was expected that the education minister would focus his interaction on CBSE board exams, results, and college admission-related queries. Apart from this, the education minister was also expected to talk about the JEE Mains and NEET 2021 exams.
The NEET 2021 was scheduled to be held on August 1. As the application form is not released yet, it is unlikely that the exam will be conducted as per schedule. Sources at the ministry of education earlier had informed that the medical entrance exam might be postponed till September.
Nishank, who is in the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) undergoing treatment for post-Covid complications, said students have been sending him messages with their queries and apprehensions.
4:10 PM: The education minister, however, did not make an announcement on JEE Main 2021 or NEET 2021 exam dates. The message was only to assure the students of safety and to share the process of the CBSE Result 2021 calculation.
4: 30 PM: Students across the country were eagerly waiting for clarity on the pending competitive exams from the education minister.
4:40 PM: Even though the education minister had asked students to ask queries, he, however, did not respond to any questions. Students have been asking questions to know about dates on JEE and NEET exams.
4:45 PM: The education minister insisted that the safety of the students is paramount to the Central government.
