The date sheet for March 2018 examinations would be delayed this year. The declaration of the date of legislative assembly elections in Karnataka is one of the reasons for the delay in the release of the date sheet.
As per tentative date, sources suggested that the date sheet for CBSE Class 10th and Class 12th 2018 board exams may be released by January 10, 2018.
In a press release sent out by Council for the Indian School Certificate Examinations, CISCE, the date sheets were said to be withheld until the declaration of the election dates. Experts, are of the view that CBSE would not delay the release of the date sheet beyond January 10.
CBSE Class 10 and 12 date sheet was released on January 9, last year. At that time there were elections in 4 states, therefore the board exams were delayed and date sheet released late. There is no official notification as yet
Although there would not be any delay in the exams. While the exact date for starting of the board examination has not been confirmed Sources have suggested that CBSE Class 12th Board examinations would start from March 1 and those for Class 10th are likely to start from March 5th, 2018.
The teachers and the students seem to be under anxiety due to the delay in the date sheet. Class 10th students would be writing the board examinations after a gap of 8 years For 8 years now, the class 10th students of CBSE affiliated schools had the option of an internal examination or an external board. Teachers have pointed out that the concern is not the fact that students would be writing the examinations at different centres but rather the syllabus.
Until last year, class 9th students were appearing in CCE pattern which only covered half of the book. Now they have to prepare for the entire syllabus. Parents have been calling teachers anxiously for the date sheet.
Experts are confident that the date sheet would be released by the second week of January, as a further delay cannot be explained.
