The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) released the schedule for the Class 10 and 12 board examinations on Thursday.

According to the notification issued by the CBSE, the board exams will start from 15 February 2023.

While the class 10 board exam will continue till March 21, the class 12 board exam will end on April 5, the notification stated.

The examination will begin at 10.30 am.

Releasing the date sheet, the board said a sufficient gap has been given between two subjects, and other factors such as competitive entrance tests have also been taken into account in deciding the dates.

"Sufficient Gap has been given in between two subjects generally offered by a student in both the classes.  Competitive 
examinations, including JEE Main, have been taken care of while preparing the date sheet for Class XII," the notification read.

"These date sheets have been prepared by avoiding nearly 40,000 subjects combinations to ensure that no two subjects' examinations of a student fall on the same date.  Date-sheet is issued much in advance so that students can prepare well for their examinations," the notification stated.
