The Minister of State for HRD Upendra Kushwaha made it clear that the rumors floating regarding the conduct of board exams in early 2018 (February ) are just rumors and they have no essence in them.
HRD Minister made the fact clear that CBSE has no plans of advancing the conduct of board exams from March to February, during the Rajya Sabha session.
"As of now, no such proposal has been moved by the CBSE," Minister of State for HRD Upendra Kushwaha said in a recent PTI report.
The minister made the fact clear because concerns were raised by many schools after CBSE issued a report in which it said that the idea of advancing the board exams from the month of March to February is under consideration.
After receiving numerous complaints from the students regarding the fault in evaluation in their class 12 exam papers CBSE also set up a committee to for the study of such loopholes.
After seeing so many errors in the process of evaluation, the CBSE at one point in time suggested to advance the exam and related activities by one month in order to have an error free evaluation.
While speaking about this decision, CBSE Chairman R K Chaturvedi said that "this would also advance the date of declaration of results, which generally come around the third or fourth week of May".
