Changes to be expected this year to accommodate JEE Main 2019 January exams: CBSE 10th 12th Board Exam 2019 Date Sheet


Central Board of Secondary Education, CBSE is currently in the process of covering up the registration for CBSE 10th 12th Board Examination 2019. Once the candidates list is thorough, the board would then release the date sheet for the practical examinations followed by the CBSE 10th 12th Board Exam 2019 Date sheet for written examinations. From 2019, the national level engineering entrance examinations – JEE Main 2019 would be conducted twice by National Testing Agency – NTA. This year, CBSE may introduce more changes – especially for Class 12 practical examinations due to JEE Main 2019 January examinations.

The first set of exams is scheduled to be conducted between January 6th and January 20th, 2018 on multiple dates. Considering the same, the board may give a wider stretch for schools to conduct the Practical Examinations – considering a large number of Class 12 students would be appearing for the examination as well.

The board mindful of ensuring that students who would be appearing for the JEE Main 2019 January examination are able to manage the date, it also need to accommodate the preponed schedule for vocational examination. CBSE had in September shared its intent to commence the CBSE Board Examinations 2019 from the month of February this year. Generally the date sheet for the practical examinations is released by the board in the second week of December. Since the practical and internal examinations are conducted at the schools, the board provides a specified time period within which the schools are required to conduct the practicals. These marks are then submitted to the board. Till 2018, the practical examinations were usually conducted between January 15 and February 25. This may, however, change in 2019.

Schools on the other hand are getting ready to start the pre-boards for Classes 10 and 12. Some have shared concerns over getting students to appear for the examinations – particularly the students who would also be writing the JEE Main 2019 January examinations. The CBSE Date sheet for practical exams is expected to be released in the first week of December, 2018.
