The CBSE Class XII results were announced by the HRD Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal 'Nishank' on July 13. Owing to the pandemic, a few of the examinations which were scheduled to be held in the last week of March and first week of April were previously cancelled by the CBSE. The CBSE had then told the Supreme Court on June 26 that there will be no further examination for Class 10, however, the Class 12 students will be provided with an option to appear for the exams or there will be a scheme for an assessment to be made based on their performance in past three exams.
