New Delhi | Jagran Education Desk: After CBSE cancelling and postponing class 10 and 12 board exams 2021, now all eyes are on CISCE board exams 2021. Both CBSE and CISCE agreed to hold the Board Exams 2021, but CBSE has backed down amid the spike in COVID-19 cases across the nation. There are chances that even CISCE might postpone the ICSE (Class 10) and ISC (Class 12) board exams 2021.
Will ICSE & ISC Board Exam 2021 postpone?
As per the schedule announced earlier, class 12 board exams will begin from May 4 while class 10 from May 5. After seeing CBSE cancelling and postponing exams, there are reports that even CISCE might announce the decision on the same line. However, there is no official announcement as to by when they will announce the decision. As per reports, an official circular is expected in a day or two. So students are advised to keep an eye on the official website of CISCE, or you can keep tracking English Jagran for the latest updates regarding Board Exams 2021.
Recently, Chief Executive and Secretary of CISCE, Gerry Arathoon, spoke to Careers360 and said that a decision for Class 10 and 12 students will be taken soon. He was quoted saying, "The CISCE board will take a decision regarding its ICSE (Class 10) and ISC (Class 12) examinations 2021 at the earliest and will inform all concerned afterwards."
As soon as CBSE announced the good news for Class 10 and 12 students, ICSE and ISC students immediately took to Twitter and asked the CISCE board about their board exams. They have shared hilarious memes, which will leave you in splits.

Meanwhile, seeing a spike in COVID-19 cases, several state boards such as Maharashtra, Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, Himachal Pradesh, Tamil Nadu among others have also cancelled and postponed Class 10 and 12 board exams respectively.
