On Monday, May 31, the Centre informed the Supreme Court that it will make a decision with regards to the CBSE examinations 2021 for class 12 amidst the second wave of the coronavirus.

According to reports, the top court was hearing a plea seeking directions to cancel the class 12 examinations of the CBSE and Council for the Indian School Certificate Examination (CISCE) in view of the COVID-19 pandemic. Moreover, Attorney General K K Venugopal told the bench of Justices AM Khanwilkar and Dinesh Maheshwari that the decision would be taken in the next two days.

Speaking about the same, the bench stated, "No issue. You take the decision. You are entitled to it." However, it said, that "if you (Centre) are departing from the policy of last year, then you must give tangible reasons for it"

On the other hand, earlier on May 23, Union Education Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal enlightened that an "informed, collaborative" decision will be taken by June 1 with regards to the class 12 board examinations. However, according to reports, states like Maharashtra at a high-level meeting informed that the "non-examination route" for Class 12 students should be actively examined. Moreover, Delhi and Kerala governments suggested vaccinating students before the examinations.

Meanwhile, the CBSE has proposed conducting the board examinations between July 15 and August 26. It further proposed for the result to be declared in September. In addition, the board proposed two options: conducting regular examinations for 19 major subjects at notified centres or conducting shorter duration examinations at respective schools where students are enrolled.
