The requests for a change in the examination centre must be formally routed through the school from where the candidate has been registered for the year 2020 examination, latest by 7th June 2020, the board said.
Easing the hurdles of students lodged in different parts of the country amidst the travel restrictions, the Council for the Indian School Certificate Examinations (CISCE) has allowed the students to change their exam centres and appear for board exams at their nearby centres. The decision was taken after the board started gearing up to conclude the examination process of class X and XII students which got disrupted due to the Covid-19 outbreak in the country.
The board officially announced that students can appear for their remaining papers at the exam centres in close proximity to the town/city/district they are currently lodged. However, the board clarified that examinations will only be conducted in schools which are CISCE affiliated. The board also outlined the procedure by which students would be able to pick an alternate exam centre.
According to CISCE, the formal request for the change in the exam centre will have to be formally made by the school where the candidates are registered for their examinations. Giving a window of a week’s time, the board has asked the students to get their exam centres changed before June 7th.
The students will have to identify their nearby CISE affiliated schools and request their school for a change in their exam centre to conclude the process.
With time passing like sand, students are anxious to get their board exam results and look ahead for their future career options. In a similar measure, the Institute of Chartered Accountants of India (ICAI) has also asked the students to edit their online application form and change their examination centre. With travel restrictions set to continue in some form or another, more and more education boards are expected to follow the same step.
