Starting on April 26, 2022, the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) will conduct board exams for the 10th and 12th standards throughout the nation. Following the guidelines stated by the CBSE board for the examination, only 18 candidates will be permitted to appear in a single examination room. From this point on, all of the city’s examination centers will be expected to plan accordingly.
The board has provided roll number slips as well as instructions that must be adhered to, by all examination locations for them to be considered acceptable. For instance, an estimated 36,000 students from government and private schools in the city will sit for the examinations at one of the 80 examination centers that have been set up in Chandigarh.
As a result of the COVID epidemic, the board examination will be held over two consecutive terms. It was held in November and December of 2021 for the first time. The subjective nature of the examination will be used in the second term. COVID-safe seating has been put in place in the examination halls so that all the students can sit down.
Previously, 24 students sat in the examination hall; however, only 18 students would sit in the examination hall this time. To accommodate this, examination centers will be required to convert five to seven rooms into examination halls.
Earlier, the examinations were held in the large hall, which had been constructed at the schools, that could accommodate 72 to 100 students at the same time. This time around, the examination center will be set up in the classroom itself.
Four supervisors will be placed in a single examination room. Everyone, from the supervisors to the students, must bring their water bottles. There should be no covering on the water bottle to avoid copying. It is not permitted to bring any electronic devices inside the examination center. Only a pen and a water bottle will be permitted while supported by a roll number slip. Students who want to take private examinations will be required to bring a government-issued identification card with a photograph.
Students from ordinary schools will be permitted to attend the examination center in their school uniform, whereas private school students will be required to dress in light-colored clothing, according to CBSE guidelines. Jackets will be restricted from being worn.
