The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) on Saturday, 5 December, announced that it has extended the application submission dates for private students of Classes 10 and 12.

The education board has also extended the application submission deadline from 11-21 November to 5-9 December. CBSE students who have already submitted the form can edit their application form online before the deadline.

“Some candidates have requested for correction in data and also some requests received by the Board to extend the last date. Looking into the requests made by the candidates, as a one-time measure, the link for submission/correction in the Private candidate’s data and filling of Private Candidates examination form is being opened,” read an official notification.

Amid massive uncertainty over conducting of the board exams of Classes 10 and 12, the CBSE on Wednesday, 2 November, clarified that the high-stake exams will be conducted in written mode only.

Since students have been raising concerns over exams, Dr Pokhriyal said that they can convey the same to him ahead of the scheduled live, using #EducationMinisterGoesLive.

So far, the board has taken no decision on the conduct of board exams for both Classes 10 and 12.

Sources indicate that an announcement on exams could be made by Union Education Minister Dr Ramesh Pokhriyal on 10 December, during which the minister will talk about “upcoming competitive and board exams.”
