The dates for class 10th and 12th board exams were announced by The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) on Sunday on its official website, cbse.nic.in. The Class 10 examinations are set to begin on 21 February and end on 29 March. The Class 12 exams will begin on 15 February and finish on 3 April.
The timings for the exam will be from 10.30 am to 1.30 pm. The students will be given answer sheets at 10 am and the question papers will be handed to them at 10.15 am.
Papers like music which are often taken as the sixth subject by the students will be conducted in the month of February while exams for the main subjects are beginning from 2 March.
The CBSE often faces criticism for dragging the exam till April ends which leads to delay in result declaration and clash with some competitive examinations. The results for both class 10 and 12 are expected to be out by the first week of June.
