A petition was filed in the Supreme Court seeking directions to the CBSE as well as the CISCE to publish an updated circular to conduct the subsequent board exams in hybrid mode, instead of offline mode in the context of the COVID-19 epidemic.

Based on the dates sheet released in the CBSE Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) the one-board examinations will begin on the 16th of November.

The first semester of the board exam for the Council for the Indian School Certificate Examinations (CISCE) would start on November 22nd.

"Consent is important because the tests directly impact the mental wellbeing of petitioners and require a safe and open environment that allows for an accurate evaluation. It is well-known that the third round of COVID pandemics is anticipated," the plea said.
