This year, the board will conduct ICSE board exam 2021-22 in two parts. The council decided to divide the 2021-22 academic session into two semesters with a 50% syllabus covering each semester. The decision was taken by the council after considering the continuing disruption of educational activities and the closure of schools due to COVID-19.

Earlier, the ICSE exams were scheduled to be held from November 15 to December 6, however, they were postponed due to unknown reasons and rescheduled to November 29.

The petitioners feared that the board exam 2022 datesheet for major subjects which is spread over three weeks could increase the risk of Covid-19 spread.
