New Rules for CBSE Board Exams

The Board examinations for Class 10th students studying the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) will begin from the 7th of March 2019 for all core or main subjects. The exams for vocational subjects have already begun from the 21st February 2019.

There are certain new mandatory rules that need to be kept in mind by the students before they appear for the examinations. These rules are important as not adhering to them will end up in cancelling of their candidature and the students might not be able to take their examinations.

The new rules are listed as follows.

  1. Students need to carry both their CBSE exam admit card as well the Identity card of the school which they belong to. Unless the students produce both these cards, they will not be allowed to enter the exam centre itself by the authorities present.
  2. The signature of parents is also mandatory on the CBSE admit cards. Earlier, only the students had to sign the admit card which was already signed by the principal. However, now the parents are also mandated to sign the card, lest their wards would not be given entrance to the exam hall.
  3. A very important point to be kept in mind is arriving at the exam centre well in time. Since the examination starts at 10:30 AM the students need to ensure they report at their centre by 10:00 AM latest. No candidate will be allowed to enter the centre if they arrive later than the given timing. The question papers will be distributed to the students at 10:10 AM and the exam will commence at 10:30 AM. Hence, it is advisable to reach the centre well in time so that you are given ample time for settling down.

Apart from these mandatory rules, it goes without saying that students must keep note of the things not allowed inside the exam halls. Some of these include calculators, mobile phones, smart watches, wallets or written material of any kind. Any student found in possession of these items is likely to be sent home without being allowed to sit for the examination.

Students must take note of these guidelines to ensure they follow the instructions and code of conduct of their board examinations. This will not only help them attempt their examinations peacefully but will also stand to their good conduct. Also checkout the syllabus of 10th all subjects in this web page.
