Board Examination Date Sheet of Class X and XII released by CBSE

Board Examination – The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) is holding Class XII Board Examinations from February 15 to April 3, 2019, and Class X Board Examinations from February 21 to March 29, NTDT reported. To give students sufficient time between following papers, CBSE has released the board examination time table seven weeks before the examination date. The Board has made it clear that the exam dates have been fixed in a way that it doesn’t coincide with the dates of competitive examinations. It may be recalled that in 2017, the Board had to reschedule the Class XII physics paper because it clashed with the JEE Main examination date.

The examination will be held from 10.30 AM to 1.30 PM. However, answer books will be given to students at 10.00 AM. Students have to write their particulars on the answer book. The question paper will be distributed to students at 10.15 AM.

CBSE offers 40 vocational subjects in Class XII and 15 in Class X. The examinations for vocational subjects will be held earlier. This decision has been taken after the Delhi High Court order said that Delhi University should fix the cutoff dates for admission to undergraduate courses only after CBSE result is declared including result for re-evaluation.

“While preparing the date sheet, the admission schedule of Delhi University has also been considered,” Dr Sanyam Bhardwaj, Controller of Examinations was quoted as saying. Examinations for core academic subjects will begin in March. Out of 240 subjects it offers, this year students have opted for 30,000 combinations of subjects in both the classes. Furthermore, the results will be declared by the first week of June, Bhardwaj added.

Preparation Strategy

Prateek Bhargava, Founder and CEO of Mindler give few tips:

Plan your day well:

  • It is important to identify subjects/ concepts you struggle with. Revisiting them shall give you more significant insights, and more clarity, and help you fare better.
  • However, you should also keep your stronger areas in check, through regular practice. Revisit the basics – they’re essential and make sure you go through examples, and illustrations.

Clear all your doubts

  • Make sure you get your doubts cleared by your teachers or your friends in advance of any revision schedule. You must have a regular interaction with your teachers to do the same

Write mock tests

  • Solving mock papers and previous years’ sample papers will not only help in providing much-needed practice but will also acquaint you with different questions that can be asked in the real examination
  • There are two key aspects, to practising mocks
  • Replicate the exam-like environment: It’s essential that you attempt your mocks like you would attempt the real examination
  • Take no/minimal breaks and keep yourself away from distractions while writing a mock exam. Also attempt your mock between 10:30 AM – 1:30 PM (the board exam time), so that you get used to the timing and can focus more during those hours
  • Never overdo them: Writing mock test enables you to do systematic practice and identify concepts/areas that need a little more revision
  • It is not recommended for you to go overboard with mock papers
  • If you’ve done your syllabus, and are just looking to revise, attempt two mocks a day
  • If you’re still preparing, attempting one mock a day is enough
