In an audio release, Pokhriyal stated that the students who desire to initiate the CBSE class 12th board offline examination can appear in August.

Earlier on June 25, Pokhriyal had also responded with the students and directed their concerns related to the CBSE and different other entrance exams. During that session as well, Pokhriyal had mentioned that students who want to take up for the exams offline will be able to do so next month. In his instructions streamed live, he said, “Students who desire to appear for exams will be accomplished to do so in August.”
This is to be noted that the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) on June 21 had lodged an additional affidavit before the Supreme Court and briefed that the results for class 12th board exams would be announced by July 31, whereas the optional examination can be conducted between August and September. The board had also mentioned that the disputes regarding the result computation will be assigned to a committee.
The CBSE Class 12th board exams were repealed on June 1 due to the COVID-19 condition in the country. Subsequently, the Board had created a panel that determined to evaluate students based on their results in class 10, 11 and 12. While 40% of the marks will be dependent on the Class 12 unit test/mid-term/pre-board, 30% marks will be dependent on Class 11 final exam and 30% marks will be based on best-of-three Class 10 marks.
While the above is for theory, for practicals, students will be judged out of 100 and the marks will be presented by schools.
