LIVE UPDATES | CBSE to release schedule of Class 10, 12 exams
Last week, HRD held a meeting with the state education ministers where they were told that the CBSE is prepared to hold the remaining board exams approximately 10 days after the day the nationwide lockdown ends.
The CBSE will conduct examinations of 29 major papers instead of the 41 pending papers of Classes 10 and 12. This includes six class 10 exams for North-East Delhi and 12 subjects for students of class 12 to be held across the country and 11 for North-East Delhi intermediate students only.
Though CBSE has stopped the evaluation process of answer scripts on March 18, the board is planning to deliver the answer sheets to examiners at home and, hence, needs the state administration’s cooperation, as per the ministry sources.
