With the Election Commission announcing the dates for polls in five states, the Council for the Indian School Certificate Examination (CISCE) has decided to reschedule its Class X and Class XII examinations.
CISCE Chief Executive Gerry Arathoon said that owing to elections, the examinations will be rescheduled but emphasised that no dates have been finalised yet. According to the previous schedule, the CISCE was planning to hold Indian School Certificate Examination for the year 2017 from February 6 and the Indian Certificate of Secondary Education Examination from Feb 27.
In a similar situation, the Central Board of Secondary Education is trying hard to avoid conflicts with the election dates. The CBSE is yet to declare the time-table for Class 10 and Class 12 examinations.
The revised time-table for ICSE and ISC board examinations are likely to be released in 10 days.
The Election Commission announced on Wednesday that the assembly elections in the politically crucial northern state will be in conducted in seven phases starting February 11.
