NEW DELHI: The Press Information Bureau (PIB) refuted claims that there will be no board exams for Class 10 under the new education policy. The PIB fact check said that the social media message claiming “10th board is over” is fake and that the Ministry of Education has not issued any order on it.

A message on the social media application, Whatsapp, claimed that the cabinet has approved the new education policy and there are some changes in it. The Whatsapp message claimed that new changes include no board exams for Class 10 and that board exams will be held for Class 12 only. The message appeared to be “forwarded many times”.

“The Cabinet has given green signal to the New Education Policy. After 34 years, there has been a change in the education policy. The notable features of the new education policy are as follows: Special and important things: Board will be in 12th class only. MPhil will be closed. College degree of 4 year. 10th board is over.
