There have been appeals for the board to conduct the exams later than usual to give students time for some offline teaching-learning interaction with their teachers in school before appearing for the examinations. The Delhi government—which runs government schools affiliated to the CBSE instead of a state board—had appealed to the Central government that the board exams not be conducted before May 2021 to give students “reasonable time to study in schools”.
