As per the official reports, for CBSE Class 10 students, results will be prepared on the basis of an “objective criterion” that is to be developed by the Board. Any candidate who is not satisfied with the marks allocated to him/her on the basis of "objective criterion" will be given an opportunity later to sit in an exam as and when the conditions are conducive to hold the exams again.

In a statement issued after the meeting with Prime Minister, the Union education ministry said, "Looking to the present situation of the covid pandemic and school closures, and also taking into account the safety and well-being of the students, it is decided as follows. The Board Exams for Class 10 to be held from May 4th to June, 7th, 2021 are hereby canceled".
