It is to be noted that the academic session 2020-21 has been badly hampered due to the lockdown imposed by Prime Minister Narendra Modi to curb the spread of coronavirus in India. CBSE and several other boards have already reduced their syllabi but it is still not easy for schools to finish the reduced syllabus within time.
Lakhs of students preparing for competitive exams like JEE Main, NEET etc are also struggling to finish the syllabus on time. It is to be noted that no reduction in the syllabus of JEE Main 2021 and NEET 2021 has been announced yet.
It is to be noted that CBSE has recently released new papers for students preparing for 2021 CBSE Class 10, 12 board exams. The CBSE is yet to make any official announcement regarding the dates of board exams but it is expected that the CBSE would hold the exam on time.
To boost the preparation of students, a new question paper design and the evaluation scheme has been also released by the CBSE for the class 10 board exam.
