The Delhi Directorate of Education (DoE) has announced that pre-board examinations for class 10 and class 12 in the state government schools will be conducted from December 15 to December 28.
According to an official statement, while the pre-board exams for morning and general shifts will be held between 9.30 am to 12.30 pm, exams for the evening shifts will take place from 2 pm to 5 pm.
The guidelines are that no student will be allowed to submit answer sheets before the completion of the exam, and only 24 students will be allowed to be seated in one classroom. The DoE has asked the schools to ensure that there is one invigilator in each class.
Schools will have to collect question papers from zonal distribution centres and district deputy education officers have been asked to take action against schools that arrive late to pick up sealed question papers or demand early opening of the papers.
Unused question papers will be distributed in the schools after completion of the exams for the students to practise, the guidelines said.
