CBSE Board Exams to Start In March As Usual, Changes Rolled Back

By Malavikka

The Central Board of Secondary Education has changed its plan to advance CBSE board exams for Class 10 and Class 12 board examinations to February, and will instead hold it in March. The news was confirmed by CBSE spokesperson Rama Sharma.

Initially, there were talks that the CBSE was examining a proposal to hold the exams in February to give examiners more time for evaluation. However, in July, Minister of State of Human Resources Development Upendra Kushwaha had said in the Rajya Sabha that there was no such proposal moved by the CBSE.


According to reports, the board exams will, however, be made into a shorter duration to provide ample time for evaluation. Last time CBSE faced a lot of hassle in the re-evaluation process as many complained that it was not done properly.

CBSE Board Exams to Start In March As Usual

In December 2016, the CBSE had made it mandatory for Class 10 students to appear for board exams starting March 2018. Earlier the students were free to choose between a board examination in Class 10 and a school-based evaluation.

Also, in another move in Tamilnadu state government, the syllabus has been revamped. The school education department has made it open for public view in the government official website and has invited the feedback of academicians in this regard.
