“Dress code mentioned in notification is advisory as it may delay entry in examination centre and cause inconvenience to the candidates during frisking by metal detectors. There is no bar on wearing customary dress or for such candidates appearing from centres in extreme climatic conditions. However, such candidates should ensure their presence for frisking by metal detector at least half-an-hour before the last reporting time i.e. 9.30 am. All examination centres have been advised accordingly. The candidates are requested to cooperate with the board and the examination centres to maintain the sanctity of the re-examination being held as per orders of the hon’ble Supreme Court of India,” said CBSE.
