The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has allowed students of classes 10, 12 board exams to change their exam centres for both practical and theory exams due to the rise in the number of Covid-19 cases across India.
The CBSE notification read, “It has come to the notice of the board that because of Covid-19 pandemic, students of classes 10, 12, along with their families, have shifted to some other city or country and therefore, they are unable to appear in the practical/ theory exam from the school/ exam centre where the students are registered for the board exams.”
The students can change their exam centres by March 25 through a request to their respective schools, the board said. It also added that the students need to inform the school from which center they wish to appear in the upcoming board exams.
The schools will upload their requests at the CBSE’s official website: cbse.gov.in by March 31.
“In case, change for both theory exam centre and practical is required, both will be changed to one city only. Two separate centres, one for theory, and another one for practical will not be allowed,” the notification further read.
Recently, CBSE also launched an artificial intelligence-driven platform- ‘AI student community’, in collaboration with Intel, where students can participate and share their experiences. The platform will focus on creating artificial intelligence-enabled social impact solutions and spread awareness about AI. According to CBSE, different types of programmes will be delivered on this platform and students will be able to participate in national and international competitions.
