New Delhi, May 25, 2020: In view of the risk of corona infection, the remaining examinations of CBSE 10th and 12th classes will now be held at about 15,000 centres in the country. Swakendra (Self Center) means the school where the students were studying, after the announcement of conducting the examinations, Human Resource Development Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank on Monday approved to make 12,000 more schools as examination centres. Earlier, only three thousand schools were made centres across the country regarding these examinations. Where there have been examinations so far, but given the current circumstances, it has been expanded.
The Ministry of Human Resource Development has also instructed CBSE to make all the necessary preparations related to the examinations at all these 12 thousand new centres. Along with this, it has also been asked to strictly follow the strict safety standards set for prevention of corona infection during the examination. Meanwhile, the physical distance will also be strictly followed. This is the reason that all these centres have been asked to keep more and more classrooms ready for the examinations as well.
At present, the ministry has decided to hold the remaining CBSE examinations from July 1 to 15. However, the tenth exams will be held only in some areas of north-east Delhi, where it could not be done due to the riots. In such a situation, there will be only 12th examinations across the country.
The ministry has already given a major relief to the students for the CBSE examinations to be held between July 1 to 15 amid the risk of corona infection. Under this, instead of going to far-flung examination centres, CBSE has decided to conduct examinations in the same schools where he was studying. In such a situation, they will not have much trouble to go to the examination centre then.
However, it has been clarified in the guidelines issued by the Ministry of Home Affairs that there should not be any examination centre in the infection affected area. Chief Secretaries of all states have been asked to make concrete arrangements regarding this.
