The HRD Ministry has confirmed that CBSE Board has identified over 15000 Exam centers to hold the pending papers for 10th and 12th Class Exams across India. The news was confirmed by HRD Minister via a tweet from his official twitter account. In his tweet, HRD Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank mentioned that a total of 15000 schools have been identified by the CBSE Board where the pending Board exams for 10th and 12th Class students would take place.
Earlier, the board was slated to hold the exams at only 3000 exam centers; however, the number of exam centres has been increased exponentially, by nearly 12000, considering the COVID-19 situation.
The expansion in the number of CBSE Board Exam 2020 comes after the HRD Minister’s announcement that students will be allowed to appear for the pending board exams at their respective schools, from where they are registered for the exams.
Typically, CBSE Board assigns external exam centers for Board exams to ensure complete transparency and minimise biases and allow external invigilators to evaluate exam papers.
Earlier in the month, CBSE Board notified the revised examination date and the detailed subject-wise schedule for the pending papers of CBSE Board Exam 2020. As notified earlier, the board would be holding the pending exams only for 29 key subjects that are important for 10th and 12th Class students to seek admission for further studies.
.@cbseindia29 ने छात्रों को अपनी स्कूलों में ही परीक्षा देने का अवसर दिया है। पहले सिर्फ 3000 परीक्षा केंद्र चिन्हित थे लेकिन अब लगभग 15000 परीक्षा केंद्रों में परीक्षा होगी ।
