As per the board, The exams are conducted for 189 papers. As, the board said if it conducts exams for all subjects of Class 10 and Class 12 at one go, it will take 40-45 days to complete. The board will first conduct board exams for the minor subjects, followed by the major subjects.
As major subjects are offered by almost all the affiliated schools, hence exams of these subjects will be conducted by fixing date sheets as done earlier. Regarding minor subjects, CBSE will make group of schools offering these subjects and thus more than one paper will be conducted by CBSE in the schools on a day.
