The CBSE had promised to announce the exam schedule in the last week of December, unlike last year when it came out later.
The CBSE board exams for Class 12 will begin on March 1, with English core, elective and functional. The physics exam will be held on March 5 and the mathematics paper is on March 20.
The exams will be over by April 17, like last year.
For Class 10 students who did not opt for school-based examinations, the exams commence on March 1 with language subjects such as Tamil, Sindhi, Marathi, Russian, Spanish and Kashmiri. The maths paper is on March 3.
The exams end on March 19.
