From 2018 CBSE Board Exams will be Held in the Month of Feb | Here’s Why

Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has framed new schedule for the Board exams of session 2018-19. CBSE Board has planned to change the timetable of Class 10 and 12 Board exams from the upcoming session. As per the new policy of CBSE, the Board exams of 10th and 12th will be conducted one month ago from 2018. From 2018, students of CBSE Board will have to give Board exams in the month of February instead of March.

According to the official of CBSE Board, the decision will not affect the students as most of them take preparatory leave from the month of January only. It has also been said that the decision will also enable smooth and correct evaluation of the answer sheet of Board exams.

Schedule of CBSE Board Exam 2018

Every year CBSE use to conduct Class 10 and 12 Board exam from the month of March to mid-April that even extends upto last of April. But from the new session of CBSE Board, the Board exams are likely to be carried out from 15 February 2018. It is also expected that after the 2018 schedule of CBSE Board exams, the exams will be over by the month of March.

With this decision lakhs of students from more than 18000 schools affiliated to CBSE Board will be affected. Last year around 10 lakh students appeared for the Board exams via CBSE and in the year 2018, nearly 11 Lakh students have registered for the CBSE Board exams for Class 12.

Benefits & Reason of New Policies by CBSE for session 2018-19

The decision has been taken by CBSE because many of the teachers go out for vacations during Summer. Due to the same evaluation of answer sheet and the result of Board exams got delayed. Also in the month of April, all the Schools affiliated to CBSE Board start up with their new academic sessions.

  • CBSE Board results will be declared earlier from 2018.
