In view of the ongoing cases of violence in North East Delhi, the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has postponed the Class 10 and Class 12 board examinations in the region.
According to reports, the decision was made after the Delhi High Court made an observation that conducting the Board Exams in the area can prove risky for students. The Delhi High Court had asked the CBSE to take a final call with regards to the Board Exams scheduled to be held on 26th February 2020.
The CBSE Board Exam 2020 was scheduled to start on February 26 in New Delhi but according to an official notification, the Board examinations have now been rescheduled. As a result, about 86 exam centres have been changed and details for the same can be found on CBSE’s official website http://cbse.nic.in/ in the ‘Recent Announcements’ section on the homepage.
The Class 10 English Communicative and English Language and Literature and Class 12 Web Application (New and Old) examinations, that were supposed to be conducted at centres in North East Delhi region, have been postponed and the revised dates for the same are expected to be released shortly on CBSE’s official website.
It should be noted that the rescheduling of the examinations is only applicable for the North East region of Delhi. In other parts, examinations will be conducted according to the previous schedule.
