CBSE Class X, XII Exams Starts Today

The CBSE board exam for Classes X and XII starts today. For the Class X exam, 8,86,506 candidates will attend the exam, which is 15.73 per cent higher than the previous year’s attendance, and around 10,98,981 students will appear for Class XII exams which is 2.82 per cent higher than last year’s number.  From the next academic session, the number of students is expected to rise much more owing to the board making the board exams mandatory for students, as currently, these exams are optional. For Class X, there are 16,363 exam centres across the country, whereas, for Class XII, there are 10,678 exam centres available for students.

Outside the country, there are fifty-eight exam centres available in Gulf countries and six centres for other different countries. As per the words of a CBSE official, the exam materials have been dispatched to all exam centres, and schools have downloaded the admit cards. The board would entrust observers of sensitive centres on a full-time basis.  To ensure a smooth running of exams, the board has made arrangements with local police and state officials across the country.

The question paper packets in sealed form would be opened in the presence of a minimum of four attendants, including one from a school not belonging to the exam centre as the witness. The board has a three-tier setting of flying squads for surprise checking, including outside Delhi, the board and the Directorate of Education (DoE). Earlier, the board had launched a mobile application for students to locate their exam centres.
