The Council for the Indian School Certificate Examinations (CISCE) has officially announced that the ISC board exam 2021 hereby stand cancelled. CISCE conducts the ICSE exams for class 10th, and ISC exams for 12th. Whereas earlier only the ICSE exams were cancelled, now the ISC exams have also been done away with for this session, in light of the pandemic.
Official press release notifying the decision of ICS exams cancellation was released shortly after the Prime Minister’s Office published the Government of India’s decision to cancel CBSE class 12 board exams 2021.
The move has been welcomed by students.
It may be noted that now, ISC results will be compiled on the basis of a mechanism to be decided and/or announced by the board. Two days ago, it came to light that CISCE has asked schools to compile class 11th and 12th internal examination marks of ISC students (read our report, CISCE Asks Schools To Send 11th, 12th Marks of ISC Students by June 7; Preparations In Swing In Case Exam Is Cancelled).
Therefore, the board was already prepared for this step. Things were set in motion beforehand to ensure that results can be swiftly compiled in case exams got cancelled. Now, by June 7, 2021, the marks of students will most likely be compiled and be ready to be processed for results.
This further leads to the conclusion that ISC results will be declared after June 7, 2021, probably shortly thereafter.
Furthermore, the board has clarified, that in case a student is dissatisfied with the results so compiled, then he or she can sit for board exams. The ISC board exams will be held for such students at a later date when situation is conducive for the same.
CISCE is the first board to announce cancellation of class 12 exams after GOI’s announcement regarding CBSE exams. After CISCE, HBSE announced cancellation of Haryana class 12 board exams.
Result of ISC 12th students will be declared as per schedule decided by the board, at the official website cisce.org. Last year the result was announced on July 10, wherein 96.84% students had passed.
