2019 CBSE Exams for vocational subjects in classes 10 and 12 to be held in the second half of February instead of March


The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) on Wednesday 26th Sept announced that its board examinations will be brought forward by almost a fortnight. The exams for vocational subjects in classes 10 and 12 will be held in the second half of February instead of March so that the results can be declared earlier. The board offers 40 skill education (vocational) subjects in Class XII and 15 in Class X.

Some of the vocational subjects offered in city schools are web applications, multimedia, fashion studies and financial marketing. Typography, computer applications, graphics and office communication are also offered as vocational subjects elsewhere. The decision follows a court order. "The High Court of Delhi in its judgment has directed Delhi University and CBSE to ensure from the commencing academic year, that the result of CBSE, including results of reevaluation are taken into account whilst determining the cut-off date for admission to colleges of the University of Delhi," said a release issued by the board.

The examinations for all core academic subjects -- languages, maths, physics, chemistry, biology, geography, economics, business studies, accountancy, economics and more -- will be held in March as scheduled earlier.

The heads of several CBSE schools in the city said conducting the exams in February would also allow more time for evaluation and ensure quicker compilation of results. The CBSE exams are at present held over seven weeks and more. "The results are declared in the fourth week of May, and the re-evaluation process can be completed only in end- July. By that time, admission to Delhi University and many other universities is wrapped up," the release said.

The subjects for which the exams will be held in February and in March will be notified on the board website (https://www.cbse.nic.in) next week.
