CBSE 10th, 12th exam centre 2020: Union HRD Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal ‘Nishank’ today said that the Central Board of Secondary Education will hold the remaining exams for Class 10th and Class 12 at over 15,000 centres across India. Earlier, the Board was slated to hold the exams at only 3000 centres.

Nishank said that the pending class 10 and 12 board exams will be conducted by CBSE at 15,000 centres across the country instead of 3,000 centres planned earlier. The exams were earlier postponed due to the nationwide lockdown imposed on March 25 to contain the spread of Coronavirus. They will now be held from July 1 to 15. The HRD minister said, “The class 10, 12 exams will now be conducted at over 15,000 exam centres across India. Earlier, CBSE was slated to hold exams at only 3,000 centres.”

The HRD minister said that the decision has been taken to ensure social distancing at exam centres and minimise travel for students.

Meanwhile, the HRD ministry has already announced that students will appear for exams at schools in which they are enrolled rather than external examination centres.

As per the guidelines of home ministry, there will be no exam centre in COVID-19 containment zones and states will be responsible for making transport arrangements for students to reach their respective centres. Generally, board examinations are held at designated test centres to ensure minimum bias from schools and enable independent external invigilators to monitor the examination process.

Class 12 exams will be conducted across the country. The Class 10 exams are only pending in North East Delhi, where they could not be held due to the law-and-order situation in the wake of protests against the amended citizenship act. (With agency inputs)
