The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) announced on Tuesday the schedule for classes 10 and 12 board exams which will begin on May 4.
As per the datesheet, the exams for class 10 will conclude on June 7, while those for class 12 will conclude on June 10.
Normally CBSE conducts practical exams in January and written exams begin in February and conclude in March.
However, the exams are delayed this session in view of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The CBSE had earlier reduced the syllabus for class 12 Board exams after considering the concerns of the students in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic and national lockdown.
Schools across the country were closed in March last year to contain the spread of COVID-19. They were partially reopened in some states from October 15 onwards
The board exams last year (2020) had to be postponed mid-way in March. They were later cancelled and the results announced on the basis of an alternative assessment scheme.
