The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has come out with an information booklet for the Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) main 2018. The board this time too, has decided to allow diabetic students to carry eatables in the exam hall. “The candidates, suffering from diabetes, are allowed to carry into the examination hall the eatables like sugar tablets / fruits (like banana/apple/ orange) and transparent water bottle,” said the Board. CBSE, however, said that packed food items like candy, chocolate, and sandwiches will not be permitted in the examination centres. It also said that items like tea, coffee, cold drinks or snacks will not be allowed in exam centres. Earlier on November 5, the board successfully conducted the UGC NET examination for about 9.30 lakh registered candidates. It was conducted in 91 cities in 1700 exam centres. Candidates appeared in three papers, paper-I of General Awareness, which was common for all, while the paper-II and the paper III were conducted based on subjects selected by the candidates. Here’s a list of other items which one should bring and avoid in exam centres.
