On schedule of ICSE and ISC 2021 is a tough task: Board Chief
Final decision would be taken after consultation with the ministry of education.
It is truly doubtful whether ICSE and ISC 2021 could be held next February because of disruption in school schedules this year.
Concerns are coming up about holding public examinations as the pandemic ranges, and elections scheduled in a number of states, chief executive and secretary of the Council for Indian School Certificate Examinations (CISCE) Gerry Arathoon has said, adding that the exams might be postponed to June.
Arathoon, however, made it clear that such a decision was totally his personal opinion as of now, and the final decision would ultimately be taken after consultation with the ministry of education. In Bengal itself, more than 60,000 students would be affected who are likely to take up exams in the coming year.
Arathoon further remarked that traditionally ISC commences around the beginning of February, while ISC towards the end of the same month. When only two months are left, it is utterly impossible to meet this demand. In addition, most of the schools have even opened for on campus classes. So everything is a standstill as of now and the boards have announced a 35 percent of cut off in the board syllabi.
