Hyderabad: The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE), on 27 May, announced that it has decided to permit students to write the remaining board exams wherever they are in view of the COVID-19 crisis in the country.

The board took the decision after it found out that some students were not currently present at the place where their examinations centres are located. The students who have returned to their states and districts can inform their respective schools, the board said, adding they will be allowed to write the remaining exams in their own districts. The students will be informed of their new examination centres in their respective cities/districts/home states by the first week of June.

In an official statement, the CBSE said, “Keeping in view the problems faced by the candidates who have shifted to other districts than the district of their examination centre, CBSE has decided to shift their examination centre to their present district. In this regard, notification will be issued by CBSE in the first week of June, 2020. Such candidates are informed that they should remain in touch with their own schools and as soon as CBSE issues notification, they are advised to take suggested action (sic).”

The board will conduct the remaining examinations from 1 to 15 July. A notification will be issued by CBSE in the first week of June regarding the new examination centres.
