CBSE Board Exams 2021: Should Exams Be Conducted Offline or Online? Poll Here

CBSE board exams 2021 are all set to begin from 4 May amidst calls for cancellation or postponement due to the rising COVID-19 cases in the country

CBSE board exams 2021 seem to have become a cause of worry for thousands of students and parents across the country. Due to the rising COVID-19 cases in the country, students claim that they are ‘tensed’ and ‘depressed’ due to the uncertainty and fear surrounding the examinations. While most of them claim to be prepared for examinations, they have been requesting cancellation or postponement due to fear of getting infected from the disease.

Students and parents also say that examinations could be conducted online as all classes were conducted online throughout the year. Furthermore, several states including New Delhi have now closed all schools for examination-related activities due to the pandemic. “10and 12 CBSE Board exams should be cancelled. The cases have been rising more exponentially than 2020. India just crossed the 1 lakh mark since 2020 for the first time. It’s not correct and fair to take exams in such a scenario. And not to mention the online classes. How do you expect a 12th std student to study the whole course online and then go and give board exams when they haven’t given any physical exam in over a year? This is very unfair,” says a student Radhika.

Prominent figures such as Priyanka Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi are also now asking CBSE to reconsider its decision to conduct examinations. “In the light of the devastating Corona second wave, conducting CBSE board exams must be reconsidered. All stakeholders must be consulted before making sweeping decisions. On how many counts does GOI intend to play with the future of India’s youth?” says Rahul Gandhi.

However, CBSE so far has maintained that adequate measures have been taken to ensure the safe conduct of CBSE board exams. Furthermore, a section of students also says that they are well prepared to give examinations. “Board exams definitely need to happen, and this hue and cry on corona is now like any other infection which in any case now we know how to handle, boards and exams are must and one can conduct in their own schools with all classrooms booked for boards,” says Poonam Mehra who echoes the views of several others who say that the world must get accustomed to the new normal.

Nevertheless, those who are for or against offline examinations can take the following poll to make authorities take a note of their voice:

    The exams need to be conducted the way it has always been conducted, offline. This virus is not going anywhere.
    The students who asked to postpone the exams earlier, have screwed everyone’s life. Had the exam been conducted in March, everything would have been fine.
    Conducting the exams online would be really tough, and would not be fair for all.
    Boards can’t be cancelled now, otherwise when the hell will it be conducted. It will ruin the whole schedule.
    Cancelling it is no option at all, because board marks matter a lot afterwards. Internal assessment would not ensure uniformity, and the students who have genuinely worked hard will face disadvantage in case of internal assessment.

      For science you know that most colleges consider JEE and NEET marks , most commerce colleges conduct there own enterence exams and i am sorry but I don’t know about humanities/arts but i think there practicals and college conducted vivas might help

      • Cbse offline and abhi hi hona chahiye says:

        You said ‘most’ and I am sure you know many students of science too go for BA, and colleges decide cut off on the basis of Boards percentage. Just think about it a little.. internal assessment will definitely be unfair to them. But now boards has been postponed, and I don’t know when it will be conducted.

        Thanks to you people, we have uncertainty prevailing in our life again.

        Jyada dikkat thi to bolte vaccinate karo sabko, cancel ya postpone hi option mile tum logo ko

    • Shrutiveda Sarkar says:

      Yeah,I totally understand you. That’s a valid statement but, they don’t expect us to give offline exams after online schools do thay? Not everyone is partying around and voting for exam cancelation. Man, I’ve had corona virus,it’s no fun! All I wanna say is if we gotta give offline exams it’s high time the school open up.

  5. anonymous says:

    #cancel boards

  6. Kumar mayank says:

    Exam should not be postponed a bit more . It’s related to our future. A student who works hard day and night wwiting for the exam to be held soon . But some critics who are useless have not done their study well only wasted time are now requesting government to postpone the exam .
    Shame on you .
    And shame on you priyanka gandhi too .

    • Sudhanshu says:

      Life is more important than anything bro Kya tu apni life se pyaar nahi karta roz 1 lakh 60 thousand corona ke cases aare hai jab classes online kar sakte hai toh exam online kyo nahi ?? Mujhe lagta hai exams online cancel ya posponed !!!

      • ... says:

        Pichle saal bachhe bol rhe the ki exam postpone karo kyunki bachhe padh nhi paaye online, to iss hisaab se exam sab kaise de paayenge online. And anyway… Online subjective paper conduct karana itne saare bachho ke liye?
        Cancel honge nhi board.. hone chahiye bhi nhi cancel
        Postpone honge to kab karaenge??? July 3rd ko adv hai, June mei pcm wale karne nhi denge
        1 august ko neet hai, pcb wale karne nhi denge.. august mei karenge to Sept mei result niklega… Pura schedule screw ho jaayega

    • Devilish says:

      well well bro listen ur day and night study won`t do any good if u get infected.

  7. Kumar mayank says:

    I just don’t get the mentality of today’s parents and students. what on earth they are doing .
    If exam is cancelled, when will it be held next .will be preparing for only board for next year or we have something else to do ?
    There is big question marks if i m not wrong every unnecessary jobs ate being done but inspite of covid situation but there is nothing to worry for that .
    But when it comes to exam all say postpone it .
    Why to postpone it man .
    Just say u r not fearing covid. .
    You are frightened bcz you have wasted only time.

  8. Maharshi Borad says:

    No postponed just cancel ❌ it because in our school the teacher are not teaching well and not solving doubt but is that not mean that the our schools are bad but we not have enough time and school does not have facility to release the program for doubt this year is worse. I have asked to my friend that how much % school help then all says 0.0000000000000000000🔁🔁🔁🔁🔁🔁½%

    And all schools are not the same and 70% schoos are teaching methods are video recording.

    And not 12th then only 11thand 10th students promote. Because 11th and 10th are not such important.

  9. Mohd Samad says:

    I like how the majority of votes are cancel and not pospone and i support it .most student don’t get the time or the resources to study for this exam and between this pandemic we cannot risk our lives.

  10. Jai says:

    If you could have studied all year you shouldn’t talk about this. You should focus on study rather than your lives

  11. @huh says:


    Elections: done

    Kumbh: done

  12. Shef says:

    To all the students saying that those who haven’t studied want the board to be postponed or cancelled I want to explain that if you were to get COVID in the middle of the exam then YOU WOULDN’T be able to give the Remaining EXAMS

  18. Soumili says:

    You have mobile to study. You have books to study. Stop making those damn excuses and please stop thinking that only your studies suffered . But you can do it even still now, if start studing now you can get more than you imagine but no you all just have to post #cancelboardexam .

  19. Ankur says:

    We can’t give board exams in this condition cancel it because our life matters you guys had your voting and see the increase of cases people are suffering and now while we give exams we too are going to face the same condition try to understand it’s a matter of many lifes

  20. Madhu says:

    First and foremost, it is unfair to cancel CBSE exams now. India is not just CBSE. Guys in CBSE must realize that they are not the only students in this country. Students studying in the respective state boards is significant, perhaps more than CBSE. Now, most of the state boards have conducted the exams. Usually online and a few classes offline. All the exams for other classes are over or getting over soon. 10th and PU are to be conducted soon. Given that situation, having a separate norm for CBSE is unfair. Why treat them as special? That is a social injustice.

    Second, COVID will not go away. New variants, new strains, refined vaccines… the saga will continue for at least couple more years. Many sectors of our society have adopted fast to this new norm. Public education sector needs to embrace the reality and move on. No question of cancelling the exams and spoiling an year for the students or promoting without exams and spoiling the future of those students.

  21. Mohith says:

    I can totally understand the fear and anguish of students who wants to write online exams or wants to cancel the exams. But my question is to some of them , not all, where was this fear when students gathered in public to campaign for cancellation of boards? Where was corona then? What about chilling in malls and family functions? It has been noted that some students had no fear of corona virus until April and suddenly started having them on the wake of board exams. Stop hypocrisy we got ample time. Now addressing the real problem , at a point where covid cases reached all time high we can think about postponement but not cancellation.

But even postponement of the exams will mess up the schedule of students who are preparing for other entrance exams like JEE,NEET,CLAT etc. So I feel exams in may is the best option.

    #cancelled board exam because safety first

  24. Arun chobey says:

    Un bachho ke liye alag se exam lena chahiye, which should be conducted by the universities…..
    Moreover why such a large population suffer for such students who want to take admission in such collages…….
    Everyone dosen’t want to take admission in du or anyother collages……
    There are students for btech, mbbs, law, etc. Which dosent require board exam marks…….
    So in the end, cbse should cancel board exams!!!

  25. khushi verma says:

    boards should be cancelled or online . the virus is getting higher in delhi . what if we get positive while boards .will bw able to give or boards or not ?
    so better is this we should stay safe at home and find some solution for online boards .
    i heartly want to request #cbse @cbse to plz take some serious action on this plz

  26. Cbse offline and abhi hi hona chahiye says:

    All those of you who want cancellation just want to find some short term solution to this issue, in the long run, not conducting CBSE BOARDS 2021 will be disadvantageous to us only. Jitna dimaag and time isme waste kar rhe ho, utna agar padhai mei lagate to ye postpone na hote and hoke khatam hote. Ab to 1 august ke baad hi karana padega, warna sab wapis dharne pe nikal jaayenge

  28. Vansh prajapati says:

    Exams need to be cancelled for class 12th also as the students of class 12th are not anticorona

  29. Akhila Anto says:

    If covid situations were not there now we would have been attending our first year in colleges. See its important for us to start with our future.. and not just keep on postponding. During this 1 year of my 12th experiences from school, study wise and teaching wise was nit at all productive. Nowadays its really hard for us to digest all these, its affecting us mentally and physically. I would request the CBSE to take a firm decision as soon as possible. Plzzzz its our request. We cant handle it any more…

  30. Suzan says:

    ✅✅✅✅CANCEL CBSE BOARDS✅✅✅✅ 🛎. As education is permanent but exams are temporary those students who worked hard will never go waste they will get their benefit anywhere.Education never goes, also we cannot take risk for our life. Exams cannot be priortizised over our life’s . Pls understand ….Last year also same thing happened exams were postponed but was not conducted due to existence of covid 19. Now condition is even worse then previous year. We cannot handle it more pls CANCEL THE BOARD EXAMS 2021. Also almost all students gives competitive exams according to their field like JEE , NEAT which will prove who learnt well .. So it will be best to cancel CBSE BOARD EXAM LIKE 10 standard AND PROMOTE ON THE BASIS OF PRE-BOARDS, PRACTICALS, INTERNAL ASSESSMENTS

  34. Min says:

    I’m also one of those who want to go abroad and we need percentage for it although I’m an average student and i this year garde are not that good for marksheet i certainly want exams to be held either online or offline and I dont think it’s impossible to conduct offline exams see our school is way bigger to conduct exams there are so many classes in a school
    Even if 15 -18 student in a class it’s possible. Pls dont postponed it

  35. Shrutiveda Sarkar says:

    Wow, this is controversial! I understand that it truly scares some people that they’ll get infected from the virus while for the others it’s just an excuse to take the high road in passing the exams. Man, I suffered from Corona and it’s definitely no fun. But, I also understand that these diseases are dynamic, these things cannot put a pause to our lives forever. And not everyone has the advantage of all thse electronics . It’s definitely not a big deal to take offline exams by dividing the no. of students attending the examinations each day. But, it’s really hard for us to attend online classes and then give offline exams. It’s not the same and it never will be. All I wanna say is if the exams need to be conducted offline, the schools should be let open now. Now is the time. If it gets any delayed , I’m afraid offline exams won’t be a solution then. It online school continues then, I demand online examinations too.

  36. Srividya says:

    Dear Friends,
    I read through all your comments agree online is not suitable offline is good but trust we lost 6 relatives in corona seen with our eyes how painful it is and we were helpless couldn’t save them at that time vaccine or proper medication was not there. But now major elders are vaccinated but not the children . Now present condition we are dealing with seasonal
    and as well as slight raising case of corona. Now tell me how to deal this. Not every human body or a child’s immunization is same. It’s not no t want to study we all did this that why we are moving ahead. Parents and children both are dealing this. Let a facility be online exam for sick children and who are fir can write offline. I hope this is ok.
