As per the latest reports, CBSE is planning to conduct the board practical examinations from December 2019. Please note the dates of the board practical examinations or internal assessment for class 10 will be decided by the schools itself. Furthermore, CBSE only provides a special period in which schools have to conduct practical examinations.

This means that the date sheet would be provided by the respective schools only for Board practical examinations 2020. Once the admit card and roll number are issued, the institute will be allotted by CBSE for private students for practical examination. The admit cards or roll numbers will be released online by CBSE in January through its official website:
