Union Education Minister, Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank, announced that CBSE board examinations for Class X and XII will be held from May 4 to June 10 in 2021.

Earlier, CBSE used to release date sheets in November and hold the board exams for Class 10 and Class 12 in February. But given the current pandemic situation, the Ministry of Education has had to switch gears.

Nishank said the practical exam for board students will begin from March 1 and the final result will be announced by July 15.

Minutes after the Education Minister announced the exam date, the CBSE website’s servers were unreachable — presumably because of the surge in people trying gain access to the new date sheet.

The website was not restored at the time of writing this article.
