CBSE Exempts Students Who Lost Parents to COVID-19 from Paying Examination and Registration Fees
The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE), through the letter No: CBSC/LOC/202, as a relief measure, has decided to waive off the exam as well as registration fees for those students who have lost both their parents or surviving parent or legal guardian/adoptive parents to the Covid-19 pandemic.
The circular directs schools to share List of Candidates (LOC) for class X and class XII on September 30 without late fees and October 9 with late fees. However, bearing in mind, the tremendous and unfortunate impact of COVID-19, the Board, has exempted examination as well as registration fees for those students who have suffered a parental/guardian loss. In order to bring this circular into effect, CBSE schools, while submitting LOC, need to provide details of these students after due verification.
Furthermore, the Board shall conduct two board exams — the first board exam will be held between November and December, 2021 while the second board exam will be conducted between March and April 2022. This arrangement has been decided to prevent any untoward situation that may arise due to COVID-19 next year.
