It is expected that CBSE will release the date-sheets for class 10th and 12th in December for the board exams. The board has already released the date-sheet for the practical exams for classes 10th and 12th. This is the second year when the board will conduct exams in February instead of March.
In 2018, the board decided to conduct exams in February instead of March to complete the entire process before admissions in colleges and universities commence.
The practical exams would be held from January 1, 2020 to February 7, 2020. Theory exams will commence in mid-February. Last year, the date sheet for the exams was released on December 24 and theory exams for class 10th begun on February 21 and class 12th on February 15.
Of the 240 subjects, the Board offers in both the classes, last year the exam was held for 30,000 combinations of subjects.
