CBSE Issues Revised Guidelines For Conducting Class 10 and 12 Board Exams.
The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has released new guidelines for all affiliated schools that are currently conducting class 10 and 12 board exams. As per the CBSE's official notification, schools conducting board exams must use plastic bags to pack all answer books that are dispatched to the relevant regional office through postal services. However, if answer books are delivered personally or with the help of the city coordinator to the regional office, plastic bags are not to be used. The CBSE has also stressed that no WhatsApp messages should be sent during the examination, whether it is for communication with the CBSE or with any other official involved in the board exams' conduction. Moreover, the Board has directed that all observations about the question papers be submitted online through the provided link: http://parikshasangam.cbse.gov.in/frmSchConduct?REF=Exam%20Activities.
