It is not feasible now to conduct board exams of classes 10 and 12 which are pending due to the lockdown imposed to curb the COVID-19 spread, Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia suggested Union HRD Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal ‘Nishank’ on Tuesday.
He made the recommendations during a meeting of state education ministers chaired by the Human Resource Development (HRD) minister.

“Curriculum for the next session be reduced by 30 per cent, exams like JEE, NEET be conducted on the basis of the reduced syllabus,” he added.
