The haze around examinations getting cleared!
The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) is expected to conduct Class 12th Board exams from July 15 to August 26.
The exact date sheet for the same will be released on June 1 after the education board holds a review meeting to access the feasibility of holding exams. The mode of exam will be offline.
There will be certain changes in the pattern of exams different from the regular protocol. CBSE had suggested either holding exams only of Major subjects OR holding exams for 1.5 hours instead of three hours. The majority of states have supported the latter option in the meeting held between high-profile ministers and state education secretaries.
If Plan B, i.e. to conduct the exam for 1.5 hours (90 minutes) is adopted, there will only be MCQs and very short type questions in the exam to allow students to complete the exam in the given time. Students will have to appear in one language and three elective subjects. The tentative date sheet for this option is the first phase of exams from July 15 to August 1 and the second phase from August 8-26. Also, the exams could be on Sundays also.
