COVID Protocols During Exam
Since schools have reopened for Class 10 and 12 in most states, the board has advised students to attend physical practical classes and prepare for examinations by strictly following all COVID-19 protocols.
According to CBSE, practical examinations and project assessments will be conducted in respective schools. The board has clarified that these examinations can only be conducted by an external practical examiner. However, an internal examiner will also be present throughout the process.
The schools may divide a batch of students into two sub-groups for conducting practical classes and experiments should be placed in such a way so that social distancing is maintained at all times.
During the viva, the student and examiner will not face each other, but sit side by side as part of safety protocol.
In addition, students must be made aware of COVID-19 health protocols like wearing of masks, washing of hands and laboratories will have to be sanitised after each batch and hand sanitisers have to be placed within the reach of students.
If practicals are conducted by a teacher other than the one appointed by the board, the examination will be cancelled and students will be awarded marks that are proportionate to what they score in that particular written exam.
