CBSE Board Exam 2020: 10 important points to remember
- The board has decided to allow all specially-abled students who need scribes to write their exams to skip the remaining CBSE Class 10 and Class 12 board exam 2020. Further, the CBSE will implement an “alternative assessment scheme” for students with disabilities who do not appear for the exams.
- Also, the board has announced that students will appear for the exams in their own schools and not external test centres to ensure minimum travel for them. “Schools will be responsible for ensuring social distancing norms are followed and students will be required to carry their own sanitised bottles and cover their face with the mask,” the board official said.
- From measures to deal with cyberbullying and stalking to digital rights, freedom and responsibilities, the board has come up with a cyber safety manual for students from class 9 to 12 to ensure the development of safe and healthy online habits among them.
- Moreover, the HRD minister Ramesh Pokhriyal on May 20 said that the Class 10 and Class 12 board result 2020 will be declared by July-end. “Efforts are being made to declare the result by July-end itself. The evaluation process has already begun for the board exams and will continue to be held simultaneously with pending exams,” the HRD minister said.
- Earlier this month, CBSE announced to resume the free of cost tele-counselling service for students from 9:30 am to 5:30 pm, seven days a week from June 1, 2020, up to July 15, 2020.
