Students across the country are worried about the uncertainty of new NIOS dates. Along with the CBSE, ICSE, and other state boards, NIOS has also decided to call off the ongoing and upcoming examination due to the Coronavirus pandemic. All the boards have been asked to announce the new exam dates when the lockdown is over i.e. on April 14, 2020.
NIOS chairman, CB Sharma said, “NIOS, which was scheduled to start its annual examination from March 24, is in close coordination with the CBSE. We will decide on new dates to conduct annual exams once CBSE releases its new schedule. This will be done once the Board checks the availability of schools to use them as exam centers.”

He also said that the NIOS will be needing a week-long time so that they can coordinate with schools to get their consent and finalize the exam centers.
