Today, January 2, the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) will begin the Class 10 and 12 practical exams for the academic year 2022–23. The board will continue to hold practical exams for grades 10 and 12 as well as project and internal assessments until January 14, 2023. All of the schools that are associated with the CBSE board will have external examiners observing the Class 12 practical exams.
There will be no further practical exams or project assessments after the planned date; therefore, the students must show up for them on that day. The CBSE has also provided many instructions for school leaders to follow in order to make the necessary preparations for the efficient administration of the practical exams. Between February 15 and April 5, 2023, the CBSE Class 10 and 12 theory exams will be conducted.
The CBSE board practical tests will be administered in accordance with Covid regulations. It is advised that students follow the rules. The schools may consider dividing the group/batch of pupils into smaller groups of 15 students each in order to prevent mass gatherings and social isolation. While the other students are working on pen and paper, the first subgroup of 15 students may attend lab work. Students who engage in wrongdoing during the practical tests will face harsh consequences.
The board has instructed schools to upload the results of all practical exams, project assessments, and internal evaluations at the same time, beginning with the dates on which the tests and assessments were administered. The board has given schools instructions to accurately and promptly evaluate the tests for classes 10 and 12 in order to announce the results.
