As a result of the ongoing coronavirus (COVID19) pandemic all over the world, the Indian education board, Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE), has made a decision to cancel exams for the students of class 10 and 12 in schools that are located outside of India and this includes Qatar where all Indian schools follow the CBSE curriculum, according to The Peninsula.

CBSE said that the system of marking/assessment for the purpose of declaring results will be worked out by the Board shortly and informed to these schools.

“There are several CBSE schools located in 25 countries (including Qatar). Each of these countries is also under lockdown and/or have decided to close down the schools for various and differential lengths of time. Under such circumstances, it is felt that the Board will not be in a position to hold a differential set of exams for each of these countries.

Also, in the present situation, it will be difficult to bring the answer books to India for evaluation purposes. Therefore, the Board has decided to not hold any more exams for the students of class 10 and 12 schools located outside India,” the board said in a press release.
