The Central Council for Secondary Education (CBSE) has published the provisional dates for the class 12 practical exam.
The notification published by the CBSE states that the practical exams in class 12 will take place from January 1 to February 8. It should be noted that the dates are provisional and that the council will announce the exact dates soon. Students are encouraged to check the official website for updates.
In addition, the CBSE has also published the SOP (Standard Operating Procedure) for the conduct of the practical exam.
Here are the latest SOPs:
1. Different dates will be sent to schools for practical exams.
2. Practical examinations and project evaluation work will be carried out in the respective schools.
3. The practical exam will have internal and external examiners
4. An observer will be appointed to supervise the practical examination, the evaluation of the project.
Meanwhile, the date sheet of the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) board exams for grades 10 and 12 will be released soon, board secretary Anurag Tripathi said on Friday.
Tripathi was speaking at a webinar on the New Education Policy (NEP) when he ended all speculation about the board’s exams. He said the CBSE was making plans and would soon reveal to students and others concerned how the central council would conduct the assessments.
Since the coronavirus pandemic has so far gone unchecked, different sections and groups have asked to postpone or cancel the board’s upcoming reviews. Tripathi’s statement that the exams would take place for sure puts an end to remaining doubts on this matter.
Although he assured all the exams, he did not specify when they would take place. He did not say whether they would be held during the months of February and March, according to the schedule, or whether they would be scheduled for another period. This will be revealed when the date sheet comes out.
The exam schedule for the CBSE exams for grades 10 and 12 for the 2019-20 session was disrupted earlier this year due to the coronavirus pandemic and the national lockdown. The remaining exams were canceled in July and the CBSE subsequently implemented a grading system for scratched exams.
