CBSE date sheet for Class 10, 12 exams announced, Class 12 students termed it ‘Messed Up’ Here’s Why ?


The much-awaited date sheet for Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) Class 10 and Class 12 examination is finally released. The examination for CBSE Board Class 10 students will begin on March 5 and ends on April 4.

The Class 12 exam will also begin on March 5 and ends on April 12.

After the much speculation on the internet regarding the date sheet of Board examination, the CBSE Board has finally released the secondary and higher secondary annual examination dates for Board students on its official website –

The students appearing for the annual board examination can check the timetable of the CBSE Board Examinations on the official portal of the CBSE Board –


The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) on Wednesday released the exam schedule for both class 10 and 12. However, class 12 students are unhappy who are demanding change in the date sheet. 

The chief concern for many is that there is no proper preparation gap between important papers. Many candidates are demanding a considerable day leave between the entrance examinations for various undergraduate courses.

Immediately after the date sheet was released, students began to complain about the unfair scheduling of the examinations.  To begin with many students who are due to appear for the JEE Main exam this year complained about the unfair scheduling of Physical Education paper which will be conducted on April 9, only a day after the JEE Main exam which will be conducted on April 8, 2018. 

Many students from science stream opt for Physical Education paper as their fifth paper and will find it difficult to revise for the exam given they won’t have a single day gap between JEE Main and the board exam.

A commerce student from class 12 is dissatisfied for getting no preparation leave for accountancy paper. “They are giving 3 off for painting exam which is not needed. Accounts paper are generally lengthy and we need time to revise this subject,” said she.

Moreover, in the arts stream, there is also no gap between psychology and political science. Dipti Arora, a political science teacher said, “It will be hectic for students to revise the subject within a day. There should be at least a full one day gap to study all the chapters,” said she.

Another flaw pointed out by Science stream students is that there is only one day gap given between English and Physics paper.

The scenario is not favorable for Commerce and Humanities students either. There is no gap between Cost Accounting paper which is to be held on March 8 and Business Studies paper which is to be held on March 9.

There is not a single day’s gap between History which is scheduled for March 20 and Mathematics which is scheduled for March 21. Similarly there is no gap between Economics (March 26) and Philosophy and Biology (March 27) or Psychology (April 5) and Political Science (April 6).

Last but not the least, there is no gap between Physical Education (April 9) and Sociology (April 10).
