CBSE Board exams to start from May 4
Union Education Minister Ramesh Pokhrial Nishank on Thursday said the final exams of Class 10 and 12 for CBSE schools will occur from May 4 to June 10. The results will be declared on July 15.
Nishank announced, “The board exams for Class 10 and 12 will be conducted from May 4 to June 10. Schools will be allowed to conduct practical exams from March 1. Date sheet for both the classes will be issued soon. The results will be declared by July 15.”
This three-month delay because of the COVID-19 pandemic has sparked some concerns over the impact on college admissions, especially among those intending to study abroad.
Practicals are often held in January, and the theory exams begin in February and then conclude in March. However, the minister last week ruled out conducting the board examinations till February given the coronavirus situation.
