"It will not be possible to conduct the remaining exams of CBSE 10th and 12th so that children should be passed on the basis of internal exams as it was done for the students of 9th and 11th," Mr Sisodia said in a tweet.

CBSE Board exams were underway when the coronavirus pandemic stuck the country, following which exams were postponed until after lockdown period. Later in April, the Board had decided to conduct only the important pending exams.

The pending exams include both optional subjects and main academic subjects.
