New Rules for Dress Code of CBSE Board Exam Candidates

The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has come up with certain rules regarding the dress code of candidates appearing for the board examinations.

The candidates have been specified what they should wear while coming for their examination as follows:

  1. The regular school students are required to come for the exam in their regular school uniform only.
  2. The private students are allowed to wear their own clothes but can only wear light coloured clothes inside the examination hall.

These steps have been taken as a way to prevent cheating using chits and bits of paper the students have tried to sneak into the exam hall in the board previously. This change of instructions and the correct dress code has been mentioned on the Admit Cards of all the students.
