CBSE has again decided to keep students hanging about the board examination. In 2017, CBSE had come under huge criticism for delaying board exam results by students and parents. The board had earlier said that the board exam date sheet for class 10 and class 12 students would be released by the first week of January but has fallen short on its promise. The CBSE spokesperson upon contacting have not given an exact date for the release of date sheet and have resorted to saying that it will be out soon.
CBSE board has however, already announced the examination dates for JEE Main and NEET UG for which it is the organizing authority. It is important since, last year the board exam had ended only a couple of days before the JEE Main exam giving students little to no time to revise for the engineering entrance exam. Hence, it is quite understandable that the delay in date sheet is a point of concern for students who are due to appear in both – the board exam and JEE Main this year.
