The official date sheet for the board examinations has been released by the CBSE. Recently, there were some changes made by the board in dates of some examinations. Students are advised to regularly visit the official website of CBSE to keep themselves updated. The Class X board examinations are scheduled from May 4 to June 7 and Class XII from May 4 to June 11 this year. This delay in the examination is due to the pandemic that has disturbed the regular academic calendar.The exams will be conducted in offline mode.
For Class X, the dates of Science and Mathematics exams are revised. Earlier, the science exam which was to be conducted on May 15 is now postponed to May 21. Similarly, the Mathematics exam will be conducted on June 2 instead of May 21.
For Class XII – Science, the Physics exam which was to be conducted on May 13 is now postponed to June 8 and the dates for Mathematics & Applied Mathematics exams are revised to May 31. Also, for commerce stream, the revised dates for Mathematics and Applied Mathematics is May 31.
Changes are also made for the Arts stream students. Geography examination which was earlier scheduled to be conducted on June 2 is now postponed to June 3.
Apart from this, students should be well aware of the deleted syllabus for the academic year 2020-21 and do not waste time in doing topics not required for the exam. Below is given the subject–wise list of topics deleted from the syllabus.
