CBSE Class X and XII Board Exam Schedule released

The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has announced the dates of the board exam for classes X and XII, thus ending all rumors and speculations about the exams being advanced.

The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has announced the dates of the Class X and XII board exams, thus ending all rumors and speculations about both exams being advanced.

 CBSE confirmed on Wednesday that it intends to stick to the same schedule as in the previous years.

The exams for both the classes will start from March 1. While Class X boards will be over by March 19, the Class XII examination will continue till April 17. This, according to the notification issued by the Board, will be applicable to all CBSE affiliated schools in India and abroad.

Apparently, no major changes have been made to the exam schedule compared to the 2013 boards.

Prior to this announcement, rumors and speculations were rife in Gulf countries including Qatar about the possibility of the examinations being advanced in the awake of the Indian parliamentary elections that will be held in the coming April or May. After CBSE denied all these rumors, many students from Gulf-based CBSE affiliated schools commented online that they were finally relieved knowing that the schedules won’t change.

However, some Class XII students complained that they could certainly use longer gaps between the main subjects such as, Mathematics, Biology and Chemistry.

“If we had a few more days in between chemistry, biology and mathematics, it would have been fantastic. All the major science subjects are completed by April 20,” said a student of an Indian school in Doha, Gulf Times reports.

Approximately 226,000 students across the Gulf countries registered for the CBSE Board Exam as compared to 217,000 students last year.

 The increase in number of students appearing in the boards, according to experts, resulted from more schools joining the CBSE bandwagon.
