New Delhi | Jagran Education Desk: The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) announced the examination dates for private category candidates on Wednesday. CBSE said that it will conduct exams for private category candidates between August 16 to September 15 in accordance to the policy framed by Supreme Court.

“The Board will conduct the exams for private category of students between August 16,2021 and September 15, 2021 and there result will also be declared in the minimum possible time to avoid any difficulty to them in admission in higher education,” CBSE said in a statement on Wednesday.

The Board added that both CBSE and UGC are looking into the interest of all the students while saying that UGC will adjust the admission schedule into higher education according to the timeline of the CBSE private category exams. “UGC will be synchronising admission schedule based on the result of these students as it was done by UGC is 2020,” it said.

In its statement, the CBSE has reasoned that in case of regular students, schools have conducted a unit test, mid-term and pre Board examination and thus the performance of regular students is available. However, in case of private candidates no such record exists and thus the tabulation policy under which the result of regular students will be released, cannot be implemented for private category students.

Earlier, CBSE private students had demanded on social media that they should either be evaluated on the basis of the average marks they scored in all the other papers as a regular candidate, or they should be evaluated on the basis of their performance in Class 10 and Class 11. The CBSE, however, while following the policy framed by Supreme Court, will conduct physical examinations.
