NEW DELHI: Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) is planning to advance the Board Exams from the coming year, 2018. With this plan of CBSE coming into action, the Class 10 and 12 Board exams will take place in February instead of March from next year only. This step has been taken to provide more time for the error-free evaluation of answer scripts.

CBSE chairman R K Chaturvedi said that the change in the examination schedule is a part of the reforms in the evaluation process.  As per the CBSE’s plan, the exams would start from mid-February and will be completed within a month.

“At present, the exams start from first week of March and usually go on for a month due to which the period of evaluation process coincides with the start of summer vacations when most of the experienced teachers go on leave. Due to this, schools offer us only ad-hoc and contractual staff for the evaluation that affects quality,” said Chaturvedi.

“New examination schedule when implemented, will offer the board enough time to work on results in its bid to make them error-free. We are expecting the best and experienced teachers to come for evaluation and will be conducting two training sessions for the evaluators. This will help to make the system more robust and foolproof,” he added.

Talking on the wrap up of verification process for CBSE Results 2017, the Board clarified that it received requests for verification of marks from only 2.47% of the students for allegedly faulty evaluation process.

The board said that despite of putting the best efforts by our teachers, the faulty evaluation in any case, may be the result of human error in transferring marks to the title page of the answer scripts and summation of marks.

Moreover, the new scheme will also facilitate the hustle free admission precess to further classes, conduction of compartment examinations and other post result activities.
