NIOS class 12 board exams 2021 have been cancelled much to the relief of students. The National Institute of Open Schooling has announced that students will be evaluated based on an objective criteria. This decision has been announced after CBSE class 12 board exams were cancelled by the Central Government earlier this week.


“Keeping the safety and security of our students on priority, NIOS cancels class 12 examinations. Students will be evaluated based on objective criteria to be announced soon.

The decision is being highly appreciated by both students and parents who were stressed out about attending offline examinations during the pandemic.

The NIOS latest notification also says that the NIOS will devise a well defined objective criterion for assessment in a time bound manner. Any learner who is not satisfied with the assessment will be given an option to appear in public examinations or through on demand examination as and when situation becomes conducive to hold examinations.
