The Central Board of Secondary Education or CBSE has prepared a rough date sheet for the CBSE class 10th and 12 board exams. The board is expected to conduct the practical examination for class 10 and 12 in December 2019 and the main examinations are expected to conduct from February 15, 2020. However, it should be noted that it is schools that have scheduled practical exams, while CBSE only provides a period in which schools should complete the practical and internal assessment examinations.
According to the new assessment scheme, the new internal assessments will carry 20% weightage of the total marks for internal assessment in subjects like Mathematics and Science. Thus the CBSE board paper will carry 80% marks in the upcoming CBSE Class 10 Board exams 2020. Apart from this, however, the Board will not allow external examiners for Class 10 practical and internal examinations.

On the other hand, the class 12 subjects have two types of mark breakups - the subjects with 70+30 break up and the subjects with 80+20 break up. Students may note that for 70+30 break up is for subjects for which external examiners are appointed to conduct the practical exams at the respective schools. However, the board hasn’t made any decisions regarding conducting of examinations at other schools.
As per the latest reports, the board will first implement this in the Delhi region. After the Delhi region, the board will be tried in the other regions in the country. On the other hand, the board hasn’t confirmed yet. CBSE is yet to decide for the 80+20 break up whether the examiners will be appointed for the 80+20 break up subjects or will the subjects be assessed internally whereas the assessment of these subjects was last year done externally.

With the introduction of the break up in almost all the subjects, including mathematics, sources have shared that the board will revert to internal assessment only as the board is planning to scrap the external examiner for the 80+20 papers. Though these are just presumptions, reports said that the circular from the board notifying the changes along with official confirmation is expected soon.
