- CBSE releases datesheet for pending board exams and will be held in July
- CBSE also wishes to declare the results in July itself
- HRD Ministry is helping the board with the preparedness
The students will be appearing for the 10th and 12th class board examinations in their own schools instead of an external centre in July for the remaining of their exams, said the Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD), today.
The evaluation process of the board examinations has already started and the Ministry of HRD has designated 3,000 evaluation centres from where the teachers will be distributed the answer sheets of the students.
The teachers will be allowed to evaluate the papers right at their homes and then return to the centre(s).
Earlier this week, the date sheet for the pending board exams was declared for both 10th and 12th classes and will take place between 1st July and 15th July.
The ministry is also planning to declare the results by the end of July.
Ramesh Pokhriyal, Union HRD Minister said, “Efforts are being made to declare the result by July-end itself. Evaluation process has already begun for the board exams and will continue to be held simultaneously with pending exams,”.
An official from the Central Board of Secondary Education or CBSE said that students who will be appearing for their Board Exams in July will be sitting in the school they belong to and not in any external test centres.
The official said, “Students will appear for the exams in their own schools and not external test centres to ensure minimum travel for them,”.
The schools, however, will have to make sure that the social distancing norms are being followed religiously during the entire time. Students will have to wear a face mask at all times and will have to carry their own hand-sanitizers in clear bottles.
The CBSE, on Monday, announced the final date sheet of the pending board exams for both classes 10th and 12th and will take place between 1st and 15th July.
The reason why these exams were postponed was the lockdown imposed across the country on the 25th of March as a precautionary step to contain the spread of COVID-19. Currently, India is under the 4th phase of lockdown which is scheduled to end on the 31st of May.
