To facilitate the ease for students who went to their hometowns, the CBSE board now allows them to write in their own places. The verdict applies to both class 10 and class 12. The Human Resource Development Minister, Ramesh Pokhiryal, reported to the press that considering the present situation this decision was taken.
Previously the Minister stated that 12000 centers were created in addition to 3000 existing centers. This increase in the number of centers will ensure social distancing and other safety measures under control. The board notified that the students can take up the exams in the place convenient for them. They are allowed to write in their own school and not in other centers. With this regard, the Minister also mentioned the fact that no exam shall be conducted in the containment areas.
The Minister asked the students to deliberate their status of living and how they would like to take the exam. The change in location and center can be done from the first week of June. Then they will make the center allocation accordingly. Also, the students will be asked to carry a sanitizer and mask with them. Thermal checkups will also be taken in the examination center.
The revised exam dates have confirmed as per schedule. The exams will happen form July 1 to July 15 for both classes 10 and 12. In the meantime the board papers are being evaluated and that CBSE works hard to publish the results towards July end.
Further, the Minister reported to the press that the answer sheets will be given to the teachers at their home and will be collected accordingly. Also, he mentioned that those who are attempting to correct in the center will be exempted from the academic work of the tenure.
