CBSE Class 10, 12 Board update: Exams for private students to be held from August 16
The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) on announced the dates for the board exams for private candidates. The latest announcement by the CBSE revealed that the exams for private candidates will be conducted from August 16 to September 15. "The exams will be conducted from August 16 to September 15 and their result will also be declared in minimum possible time to avoid any difficulty to them in admission in higher education," CBSE Examination Controller Sanyam Bhardwaj said. Additionally, the board ruled out declaring results of the private candidates on the basis of an alternative assessment policy like that for regular candidates, saying “neither schools nor the CBSE has any previous assessment record for these students.” Meanwhile, numerous private candidates gathered outside the CBSE headquarters earlier on Wednesday and staged a protest alleging disparity between them and regular candidates. "The CBSE will declare the result of regular students as per the policy approved by Supreme Court. In case of regular students, schools are having records of the assessment done by the schools during the current year and thus their result could be declared based on the assessment policy," Bhardwaj said.
