CBSE classes 10, 12 exams for private candidates from Aug 16 to Sep 15

Last date to finalize class XII result extended                                                             NEW DELHI: The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) on Wednesday announced that classes 10 and 12 exams for private candidates will be conducted from 16th August to 15th September while it extended the last date of finalising the class XII result, from 22nd July to 25th July.
The board ruled out declaring results of the private candidates on the basis of an alternative assessment policy like that for regular candidates, saying neither schools nor CBSE has any previous assessment record for these students.
“The exams will be conducted from 16 August to 15 September and their result will also be declared in minimum possible time to avoid any difficulty to them in admission in higher education,” CBSE Examination Controller Sanyam Bhardwaj said.
Earlier in the day, a group of private candidates staged a protest outside the CBSE headquarters alleging disparity between them and regular candidates.
