The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) released the CBSE Class 10 and 12 examination dates for 2020 on Wednesday night, which left students unhappy due to irregular preparation offs between important exams. Some students and parents took to Twitter and demanded that changes be made in the exam schedule. The students alleged that while there are too many offs in some subjects, there’s too little preparation time between other subjects.
Most of the requests came from students of the commerce stream. Some Twitter users also planned a mock date sheet and recommend that CBSE give a fixed seven-day off between important subjects.
Earlier, CBSE also stated that they will take care that “students get sufficient time between the examination of main subjects” along with “Delhi University admission schedule” as well as the “distribution of students in such a way that a large number of candidates do not reach any examination centre on any particular date” while preparing the date sheet.
Here’s what the Twitter users had to say:

Well CBSE expects the students to revise whole physics syllabus in 1 day and expect the students from smaller cities to be coming back and giving their board exam. Well this datesheet is totally CRAP.#CBSE #CBSE_datesheet #CBSEDatesheet https://t.co/t3JG89tPGE
