Recently, CBESE told that it is planning to conduct the board exams from the month of February instead of March from 2018. CBSE told that moving the schedule one month ahead will give more time for evaluation and will prevent the mistakes which happened in this year's class 12 board exams.
Before finalizing the decision, CBSE said that it will not make a move in this direction without consulting its various stakeholders including the affiliated schools.
After the announcement of moving the exam schedule a month ahead, many schools raised their concerns over the decision of the CBSE.
“The purpose is to have more time for evaluation and bring quality. However, there will be no decision on the advancing the exams without taking stakeholders on board,” a senior CBSE official said.
The board is planning to move the exams of class 10 and 12 in the month of February.
Last week, CBSE had a meeting with the HRD ministry where they discussed about the discrepancies in the marks achieved by the class 12 students and the marks reflected in the mark sheets. School Education Secretary Anil Swarup and CBSE chairman R K Chaturvedi attended the meeting.
