The breaking news last week for the exam-centric Indian society was that there will be no year-end Board exams for Class 10 and those for Class 12 students stand postponed. The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) announcement came first followed by a handful of state boards declaring the same and finally by the end of the week the Council for the Indian School Certificate Examinations (CISCE) had followed suit.
