In a tweet, earlier in the day, CBSE said: “Recently there has been a lot of speculation regarding 10th CBSE Board exams. It is reiterated that the board's decision to take board exams for 29 subjects of Class 10 and 12, stands the same as mentioned in circular dated 1.4.20.”

Delhi deputy chief minister Manish Sisodia had urged the Union Human Resource Development (HRD) ministry to cancel the pending exams for Class 10 and 12 and promote students on the basis of internal examinations.

Sisodia recommended a 30 percent reduction in curriculum for the next session and said that “exams like JEE, NEET be conducted on the basis of reduced syllabus”.

According to a report in NDTV, subjects for which exams for Class 12 are set to be conducted are Computer Science, Geography, Hindi, Sociology and Business Studies.

For Class 12 students of Delhi's northeast region where exams had stalled due to the violence that broke out in February, subjects like English (elective and core), Economics, Mathematics, Biology, History and Political Science too are to be assessed.

Students of Class 10 from northeast Delhi, will similarly sit for Hindi, English, Science and Social Science exams.
