NEW DELHI: The Council for the Indian School Certificate Examinations (CISCE) has written to state chief ministers asking them to allow the partial reopening of schools for Classes 10 and 12 from January 4, 2021. This year, the board conducted the Class 10 ICSE exam for 2,341 schools and the Class 12 ISC exam for 1,125 schools across the country. The ministry of home affairs' unlock guidelines have left the states to decide on reopening of schools and there is no consensus among them on when to do so. Some states reopened schools in November but some shut them again following spikes in COVID-19 cases.

"With the students physically attending school, this time will be utilised for practical work, project work, SUPW work and for 'doubt clearing' lessons," says a statement issued by CISCE chief executive and secretary, Gerry Arathoon. He further added: "If allowed to reopen, the schools will be informed to follow the directives of the state government regarding COVID-19 and to conform to the safety guidelines and the standard operating procedures of the state health department to prevent the spread of coronavirus."

This CISCE has also requested Chief Election Commissioner of India to share the dates for upcoming state elections and said that the dates for ICSE exam 2021 and ISC exam 2021 will be frame accordingly. "This will enable the CISCE to finalise the schedules for ICSE-Class 10 and ISC-Class 12 year 2021 examinations and to ensure that there are no clash of dates," said the statement from CISCE.
