The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has released an official notification stating that the board has decided to pre-pone the CBSE Board 2020 Practical examination and internal assessment for classes 12 and 10, respectively. The schools which are situated in winter bound areas would conduct the Class 12 practical examination/ project assessment and internal assessment for class 10 between November 15 to December 14, 2019.
According to the sources, the decision has been taken in view that the other dates released – January 1, 2020 to February 7, 2020 may not be conducive for these schools.
The board has also released the method and changes included in the practical examination process for class 12. As for the changes, the CBSE would be appointing an Observer for all practical examinations of CBSE Boards 2020.
Apart from an observer, CBSE would also be requiring all the practical examinations to be ‘geo-tagged’. The external examiner would be required to conduct the exam and upload the marks in the link provided on the same date.
Apart from the instant uploading, the external examiner is also required to click a picture and upload to the app. The picture should clearly show all the students who are appearing for the examination on the day and also the external examiner, internal examiner and observer.
