Good News for students who have travelled back to their homes and were concern about the upcoming exams as HRD Minister Dr Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank informed that those students who were not in the districts where their examination centres are located will be able to appear for the exam from the place they are in.
“It was earlier decided that students will not have to go to any other place for the pending class 10 and class 12 exams and rather appear from the schools they are enrolled in, however, since students have left their schools or hostels and are now at their homes, we have made a change. Now, students will be able to appear for the exam from the place they are in,” the Human Resource Development (HRD) Minister Dr Ramesh Pokrhiyal Nishank informed through a video.
Now students will have to give the details of their current status. By the first week of June, students will be informed about their exam centre, he had added. The pending CBSE board exams will be held from July 1 to July 15.
The exams will be held amid social distancing norms. The board has increased the number of exam centres from 3000 to 15,000 to enable students to stand at a distance. Further thermal check-ups will be mandatory for students before entering the exam hall. Also, masks and sanitisers will be allowed in the exam halls.
