Concerns have been shown by the class 12 students regarding the datesheet released by CBSE for class 12 board examination. Some of the examinations are back to back leaving little space for students to relax and revise for next exam. Specifically those in the humanities/ arts stream are the most impacted as exam for psychology exam is on April 5, political science exam is on April 6 and legal studies exam is on April 7.
Political science for class 12 has almost 20 chapters and its almost impossible for students to revise all 20 chapters in just half day.
Further, even for science students the situation is not different as English and physics exams are also back to back. Both being important and little difficult subjects so some gap must have been given by the CBSE board between these exams.
Now even teachers have come in support of students as many school teachers and principals have given statements that gap between exams are required to relax the mind of students, so that they can be stress free and prepare for examinations without any fear due to less time available. They also said that since board exams are being held after a long gap thus the board should have been careful this time.
Official confirmation from CBSE is still awaited. Refer to the links below for latest updates on the upcoming board examinations. Also refer to the sample papers for 2018 for class 10 and class 12 on www.studiestoday.com
