Union HRD minister Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank has announced that the students can appear for their CBSE board examinations from their current location. On a video, the minister said, “Since students have left their schools and hostels, they can appear for the pending class 10 and 12 examinations from the place they are in.” The students will have to provide details of the place they are in currently by the first week of June. They will then be informed about their respective centres.
Earlier, the minister had said that the students can write their examinations at the schools they have enrolled in to enable better measures for students and their parents to commute. But later issued a circular stating that no centres can be set up in the red zones.
The CBSE board examinations from current location will be held from July. To enable social distancing, the Board had also increased its number of centres to 15,000 across the country. Using masks, sanitiser and thermal checks at the centres have been made mandatory.
The evaluation of the papers which are already completed has begun. The teachers are conducting evaluation from home. The minister said that the board is trying to announce results soon and will mostly be declared by the end of July. To help declare results faster, the minister said that the teachers who are involved in evaluation process are exempted from delivering academic and administrative work for the tenure.
