He stated that the questions that would be asked in the exams, will be based on the revised syllabus that was given to the students keeping In mind the coronavirus pandemic. According to the revised syllabus, the portion of the students has been reduced to 30 percent of what it was earlier.

Recently, in a piece of fake news, a claim about the passing marks of the students who will be appearing for their board exams got viral. The Press Information Bureau (PIB) Fact Check tweeted on January 15 and January 19 that the claim was false, and a clarification was issued. On January 19, the PIB tweeted, "In a post on social media, it is being claimed that 2021 of 10th and 12th have been reduced to 23 percent for passing the board examination now by 33 percent." PIB Fact Check: This claim is fake. Education Ministry has not made any such announcement. It added that the Ministry has not made any changes to the passing marks for the exams.
