While the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) is yet to release the date sheet, students are eagerly waiting for it and are expecting the board to release it soon.
There were reports that CBSE would release the date sheet by the end of December this year but new reports suggest that it will be released by mid January next year.
“The date sheet for the CBSE Class 10, 12 examinations 2019 will be released within the second week of January. All the students who will appear in the examinations can check the schedule through the official website, cbse.nic.in,” Indian Express quoted CBSE chairman Anita Karwal as saying.
CBSE will conduct the vocational examinations in February while exams of the core subjects are likely to begin from March 1, 2019.
Moreover, the board has revised the question paper format for both class 10 and 12. As per the circular released, the number of internal choices has been increased by about 33%. Almost all the core subjects will have 11 internal choices in various questions.
CBSE has also decided to continue with the changed passing criteria for class 10 for the second consecutive year. The revised passing criteria require students to score combined 33% mark to pass- it includes internal assessment (practical marks) and external (board exam) marks.
