CBSE board seeks photographic proof of practical exams for Std X and XII


The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has released dates for practical examinations for Std. X and XII.

According to the schedule, practical assessments will be held between January 1 and February 7, 2020. The practical examinations will take place in the presence of CBSE’s external examiner.

This year onwards, the board has directed schools to send a group photograph of the external examiner, students and the internal teacher during the exams. The schools will have to upload the photographs on the website along with batch number and date among other details.

“An app link will be provided to schools for uploading one group photograph of each batch during the practical examinations. The class group photo should consist of all the candidates of that batch, external examiner, internal examiner and observer. The photograph should be taken in the laboratory where practical exams are being held and laboratory should also be seen clearly in the photograph,” Sanyam Bharadwaj, CBSE controller of examinations told TOI.

The final board examinations are expected to be held from February 15, 2020. Students can check further details at the board’s official website
