CBSE Releases Date Sheet for Pending Class 10th and 12th Exams: All That You Need To Know
CBSE Exam Date Sheet Released

Due to the sudden outbreak of the novel Coronavirus, everything in India, much like the rest of the world, had come to a halt. Educational institutions, factories, industries, shops, everything came to stand still. Even the ongoing board exams were paused. This was the first time, that keeping in mind the health threats to students, teachers and parents, the government had asked the educational boards to put ongoing exams on a hold. This was in March, 2020. 

Now, after about three months of inactivity, and keeping the current scenario in mind, the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has released its exam date sheet for the pending class 10th and 12th board exams. Pending exams will now be held from July 1, only for major subjects. 

Along with the date sheet, it has also released an advisory on the precautions that the students, teachers, parents, and the schools conducting exams will have to take.

The Human Resource Development Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal released the date sheet through his twitter handle. The board has also decided to give the students of class 9th and 11th, who could not clear their exams in the first round, another chance. The schools have been advised to conduct online or offline exams and promote these students to the next class. 

Union Minister for Health and Family Welfare Dr. Harsh Vardhan through his tweet has requested the board and the education minister to ensure the safety of the children appearing for the exam.

Guidelines to be Followed During the Exams

The CBSE has issued detailed guidelines that have to be followed by students, teachers and all personnel at the examination centres. 

The board has marked 3,000 schools as the centres for conducting board exams and all these centres have been issued strict guidelines to be followed during the examinations. Apart from the use of sanitizers, masks and maintaining social distancing, there are certain other things that stakeholders will have to keep in mind. 

  • CBSE will be sanitizing all the exam centres twice before conducting the examinations. 
  • The board has asked the centre coordinator to strictly maintain social distancing. Usually, 24 students are allowed to be seated in one room, but adhering to the norms of social distancing the board has allowed only 12 students in one room.
  • Apart from the sanitizer that the centre would be providing, students have also been asked to carry their own sanitizers. 
  • Students will be allowed to enter the examination hall only with masks on. The students will have to remove the mask only at the time of security check before entering their exam hall. 
  • The invigilators will also have to take complete precaution, and in case they find a student with symptoms, they will have to report it to officials.
  • Parents are also advised to ensure that their child is not sick, and is mentally and physically fit.
  • Even at the evaluation centres, the board is ensuring that proper social distancing is being followed by the examiners.
  • If any child is suffering from symptoms, the parents may request the board and the centre to arrange for an isolated room where the child can write his exam. 

The board will also ensure that all the guidelines by the health ministry and the World Heath Organisation (WHO) are being taken into consideration while the exams are on.
