Odisha government has announced that the students of classes 9, 10, 11 and 12 will be promoted to the next standard without holding the examinations. With the notice released by the Education Department, it has been confirmed that Odisha Board class 10th exams 2021 have been cancelled which were scheduled to commence from May 3, 2021.

Odisha board will declare the class 10th result 2021 based on the objective criterion to be decided later on by the board. Since, the board could not conduct any exam for the class 10th students, hence, criterion based on which students shall be promoted to the next standard may include internal assessment.
