Pokhriyal had earlier announced that the CBSE class 10 and 12 examinations would be conducted between July 1 and July 15.
While, the board exams for class 10 are going to be just for the students from North-East Delhi, but for Class 12 it'll be nationwide.
All the examinations, including those of board classes, were suspended in March amid the continued coronavirus pandemic.
While Delhi Education Minister Manish Sisodia had demanded that the students should be evaluated on the basis of their performance in the internal exams, the CBSE said it'll hold the exams for these classes.
Nishank later said that no examination to be held for class 10 students nationwide, apart from students from North-East Delhi.
He had assured that "an adequate time of 10 days is going to be given to every student for the preparation of exams."
The CBSE had postponed examinations in some parts of North-East and East Delhi between February 26 and March 7, in sight of the safety of pupils after communal violence took place within the area.
