The Indian Government has announced the postponement (for Grade 12 students) and cancellation of Grade 10 CBSE curriculum examinations. This followed Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi calling a Coronavirus crisis meeting to address the surge in infections in the country with more than 180,000 new cases recorded within 24 hours.

The Central Board of Secondary Education Examinations conducted in Grades 10 and 12 are the Indian equivalent of GCSEs and A Levels. Grade 10 exams were due to run from May 4 to June 14. Grade 10 students will be awarded grades based on criteria set by the board. Exams for grade 12 students were due to start in early May. Authorities will review the decision in June with students being given 15 days' notice if the exams are to take place.

Three international schools in Singapore follow the CBSE curriculum, with thousands of students sitting the CBSE examinations each year – GIIS SMART CampusNPS International School and Yuvabharathi International School.

Many governments, including the UK from which the GCSE and A Level examinations are organised, have taken the decision to assess students applying for university places based entirely on coursework and teacher assessment both in 2020 and again in 2021.

This is the second year that students at Singapore's Indian school have faced delays and the eventual cancellation of some exam papers due to Covid-19.
