Board exams in 2021 will be in written mode only and not online, Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) officials said on Wednesday even as consultations on dates for the conduct of the examination are still underway. The officials of the board also said that if students were not able to sit for practicals in classes before the exams, alternatives would be explored. Although no final decision has come out yet. You can be a stakeholder in the process by tweeting the Education Minister today, i.e. December 3rd to share your concerns. Union Minister of Education Ramesh Pokhriyal 'Nishank' is supposed to hold an interaction with students, teachers , and parents on 10 December on the issue of conduct of board examinations and competitive examinations next year so you can expect a final decision after that.
