The schools affilitated to the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) and the Council for the Indian School Certificate Examinations will also reopen along with other public educational institutions on November 1 in Kerala.
The explanation comes amid a barrage of social media posts and reports that there would be a common question paper provided by CBSE for standards 9 and 11.
Kerala Education Minister V Sivankutty has said that a grading system will be introduced to prevent the CBSE students from losing out on admission for higher studies.
The decision has been made in line with the recommendation of the National Education Policy (NEP) 2020.
Marks obtained in the offline examinations would be utilized to decide the scores in subjects for which no tests could be conducted.
The result are being announced on the basis of an alternate assessment policy.
It will be for the first time in the history of annual board exams, the result will be declared without holding any exam.
The registration process for nearly 70,000 seats available for undergraduate courses will start on August 2.
While 99.37 per cent students passed, no merit list was announced this year.
The assessment framework will be implemented in select schools in this academic year itself.
