CBSE Board will allow Class 10 and 12 students to appear for their pending exams from the current region where they are located.
The Union Human Resource Development (HRD) Minister, Ramesh Pokhriyal ‘Nishank’ has announced that students who have moved to a different district as a result of the nationwide lockdown will be allowed to give their CBSE pending board examination for Class 10 and 12 without worrying to travel back to their examination centres that were assigned to them earlier.
They will be assigned new exam centres by the CBSE board in their home district itself. The decision was made keeping the students' interest in mind who will have to suffer if they are asked to give their pending papers from their already assigned exam centres, given the situation due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
A notification and registration modalities in this regard will be issued by CBSE, as confirmed by the Union HRD Minister. The students are instructed to notify their respective parent schools regarding the change in exam centres, Pokhriyal said on Wednesday.
The HRD minister said, “Class 10 and 12 students who have to appear in pending board exams but have moved to different states or districts during the lockdown when schools were closed, will be able to appear for exams at their present place only. They will not be required to travel back. The CBSE will issue a notification in this regard and modalities for registration of such requests.”
The students will get a final confirmation regarding their altered exam centres by the first week of June.
The CBSE pending board exams are scheduled from July 1, and will continue till July 15. The exams were postponed due to the nationwide lockdown that was implemented from March 25 - to break the cycle of the speedily spreading COVID-19 pandemic.
Sanyam Bhardwaj, the Controller of Examination of CBSE had mentioned earlier that the Class 10 board examinations will commence from July 1. The examinations will be wrapped up in four days – where the first paper will be Social Science followed by Science.
While the Class 10 pupils will have to appear for only four exams, students of Class 12 will have to sit for twelve subjects - Business Studies, Geography, Hindi (Core), Hindi (Elective), Home Science, Sociology, Computer Science (Old), Computer Science (New), Information Practice (Old), Information Practice (New), Information Technology and Bio-Technology.
Students can expect the results for CBSE Board Exam 2020 to be announced in August. The plan is to declare the board results before the results of the major competitive exams such as JEE Advanced 2020 are out.
