CBSE board to conduct exams a month early from 2018!
CBSE Board is planning to bring more experienced teachers for evaluating answer sheets and will also be conducting training sessions for evaluators
From next year, CBSE board will conduct exams of class X and XII a month early and the exams will be over in 30 days. Currently, the exams start in the month of March but coming 2018 the exams will begin in February and will get over in a month. Generally, board exams start from March 1 and get over around mid-April. The scheme is being introduced to focus on “error-free evaluation”.
CBSE chairman R K Chaturvedi said, “By April, vacations begin and the experienced teachers are not available. Therefore, advancing evaluation to mid-March will ensure we have the best teachers checking the answer scripts. Otherwise, in April during vacations, schools offer us only temporary, ad-hoc and newly-appointed teachers for the evaluation exercise as experienced teachers don’t oblige”.
Board is planning to bring more experienced teachers for evaluating answer sheets and will also be conducting training sessions for evaluators. “Just like teachers’ training, we are planning two evaluators’ training sessions each year starting December 2017,” added Chaturvedi.
