CBSE Admit Card 2020: Board issues important guideline for private candidates
The Board said these instructions have been given so as to evade unnecessary suffering to private candidates who are going to appear in Class 10 and Class 12 examinations.
The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has ordered the Centre Examiners to permit private candidates to sit in their respective examinations, even if their CBSE admit card has not been signed by the Principal. Though, the Board informed the admit card must have signatures of candidate and parent on the place reserved for the same. The Board said these instructions have been given so as to evade unnecessary suffering to private candidates who are going to appear in Class 10 and Class 12 examinations.
The CBSE has commenced the Class 10 and Class 12 annual examinations this week and the examinations for main theory papers will be held from next week. In another update recently, the Board has clarified that schools cannot detain students and stop them from taking board exams based on their pre-board exam marks. The announcement was made by the Board through its Twitter account in response to tweets made by students.
Yesterday, the Delhi High Court discharged a petition asking for rectification of errors in the CBSE Class 12 accountancy sample question papers and charged a fine of Rs 25,000 on the petitioner. More than 18 lakh students have applied this year for Class 10 exams. The number of registered students in Class 12 exceeds 12 lakh. The board exams have commenced with skill-based subjects first. The board provides 17 skill subjects to Class 10 students and 42 subjects to Class 12 students. The exam for skill-subjects will end on February 20, after which the exam for language papers and electives will start.
