There are 17 additional pending papers for students in north east Delhi whose examinations were postponed due to violence in February. That includes six pending papers for Class 10 students and 11 pending papers for Class 12 students.

CBSE is expected to release a detailed schedule for the examinations later on Friday evening, said Mr. Nishank, noting that students have been impatiently awaiting information on the rescheduled dates.

Classes and examinations were put on hold from March 16, due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The country is now under lockdown, at least until May 17. It is unclear when educational institutions will be allowed to reopen.
