While mulling over advancing the CBSE Class 10 and 12 board exams from next year, the Board said that no such decision will be taken without consultations with various stakeholders including schools.
Actually, the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) is planning to advance the Board Exams from the coming year, 2018. If the proposal is approved and materialized, the Class 10 and 12 Board exams will take place in February instead of March from next year itself. This step has been taken to provide more time for the error-free evaluation of answer scripts. Moreover, it will spare enough time for the students who wish to take admission to the under graduate programmes which either begin before or immediately after CBSE announces the board exam result.
After a number of complaints flooding in about faulty evaluation process, the board set up two committees to study loopholes in evaluation process and suggest various measures to rectify the problem. “However, no decision will be taken on advancing the exams without consulting the stakeholders. The idea will be studied taking into consideration various processes and preparations in the administration of exams,” a senior CBSE official said.
As per the existing exam schedule, the Class 10 and Class 12 Board Exams commence from first week of march and are conducted over 45 days, and the results are declared around the third or fourth week of May. Advancing the exam schedule by a month will give enough time to bring in the error-free evaluation. Moreover, this move by the board will also facilitate the hustle free admission process to further classes, conduction of compartment examinations and other post result activities.
