ICSE exams cancelled: ICSE exam 2021 cancelled, ISC postponed


NEW DELHI: The Council for the Indian School Certificate Examinations (CISCE) on Monday announced the cancellation of ICSE, reversing an earlier decision to defer the exam and giving students the option to take it at a later date. However, the ISC exam stands postponed, the board clarified in a letter sent to schools.

“Given the present worsening situation of the Covid-19 pandemic in the country, the CISCE has decided to cancel the ICSE (Class X) 2021 examination. The options given in the earlier circular dated 16th April 2021, now stand withdrawn. The safety and wellbeing of our students and teaching faculty is our topmost priority and of paramount interest,” the council said in a statement.

The council further directed all CISCE affiliated schools to begin the admission process for Class XI. “In addition, schools should prepare a schedule to begin online classes for the Class XI students at the earliest. The syllabus to be followed is the ISC 2021 syllabus,” notice added.

Candidates should note that the status of ISC 2021 exam remains the same. The council will closely monitor the covid situation and a final decision on the conduct of the class 12 examinations will be taken by the first week of June.
