CBSE class 10, 12 exams planned in two shifts on same dates
The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) expects to reduce the examination period and give examiners more time to check the answer sheets by holding the class 10 and 12 final exams in two shifts on the same dates. The plan came into being after a meeting with principals of leading schools in the Delhi NCR region.
A final decision will be taken about the suggestions after review by two committees of the CBSE that suggest improvements in its systems.
Generally, the CBSE conducts the two exams from March 1 every year. These go on for nearly 45 days on account of the many subjects and different timetables for both the classes.
Due to the large number of examinees, only a small window of time is available to the examiners to check the answer sheets and that is what the CBSE aims to change.
Presently, there are no exams in the afternoon.
