The Central Board of Secondary Education on Wednesday postponed ongoing class 10, 12 examinations till March 31 in view of the coronavirus outbreak.

"All ongoing CBSE examinations in India and abroad postponed till March 31 and will be rescheduled thereafter... after an assessment of the situation," CBSE Secretary Anurag Tripathi said.

"All ongoing evaluation work will be suspended during the period," he added.

The CBSE announcement came following a directive from the Human Resource Development ministry saying exams are important but safety and security of students and teachers is equally important.
