Two of the fake documents were dated 1 April, 2020, and the remaining were from 28 March and 7 February.

The first document dated 1 April falsely mentions that all the remaining papers for ICSE and ISC 2020 examinations have been cancelled due to the 21-day national lockdown. The other document, a fake press release, from the same date, notified revised dates for ICSE (Class 10) examinations from 16 April to 22 April, 2020.

The third document dated 28 March mentioned that the results for ICSE and ISC board examinations will be declared on the basis of six subjects in which students have already appeared.

The fourth document dated 2 February was about the ISC English-I paper.

CISCE has said that for all genuine updates on the examinations, students and parents are advised to visit the official website www.cisce.org.

The 21-day coronavirus lockdown imposed by the government came into effect from 25 March. Following this, CISCE postponed all the remaining ICSE and ISC board examinations.
