New Delhi: The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) is likely to conduct the remaining Class XII examinations in the first two weeks of July. Union Human Resource Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal ‘Nishank’ will be announcing the revised schedule this week, according to government sources.
Since the JEE Main and NEET entrance exams are scheduled between July 18 and 23, the board is expected to conduct the remaining exams of Class XII before these entrance tests.
However, the results for the Class XII exams will be announced by August-end, before the IITs release the merit list for JEE Advanced.
The remaining exams for Class XII are business studies, geography, Hindi (core), Hindi (elective), home science, sociology, computer science (old), computer science (new), information practice (old), information practice (new), information technology and bio-technology.
Besides this, the revised schedule for Class X and XII students, who could not appear in the examination due to Delhi riots, will be announced shortly.
Amid the lockdown, to fasten the paper-checking process, the board is also considering sending answer sheets to the teachers at home.
