ICSE, ISC improvement exams in October
The Council for the Indian School Certificate Examinations will hold improvement exams for the ICSE and ISC batches of 2020 from October 6 to 9, the council said on Wednesday.
The improvement test for ICSE students will be held between October 6 and 9. The ISC students will take the exams on October 6 and 7.
The compartmental exams, too, will be held in October, the council said. For ICSE students, the compartmental exams will be held on October 6 and 7. For ISC students, the test will be held on October 6.
The council had earlier announced that it would hold improvement and compartmental exams in November depending on the pandemic situation.If the situation did not improve, the exams would be held along with next year’s ICSE and ISC exams, the council had said.
The council decided to change its earlier decision because of the way the all-India entrance tests such as the NEET and IIT-Main were held, Gerry Arathoon, council secretary and chief executive, said. “The compartmental exams of the CBSE, too, are in progress. So, we decided to conduct the exams in October to ensure our students don’t face any problem during undergraduate admissions.”
The timetables for the exams were released on Wednesday.
