Last month, the CBSE announced the revised exam dates for classes X and XII, scheduled to take place between July 1 and 15. Class X board exams would only take place in the northeast of the state capital.
The CBSE had announced that all students in grades 1 through 8 would be promoted to the next class without exams. Students in grades 9 and 11 should be promoted to the next class based on the school’s internal ratings.
From July 1st to July 15th there will be 10 and 12 exams.
