The relaxations for the wards of the armed forces and para-military personnel has been extended by the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE). The relaxations and exemptions pertain to the class 10 and 12 board examinations. Such relaxations will include the flexibility for the assigning of examination centers, rescheduling of the practical exams aimed to benefit those who have missed them etc.
CBSE reported that the relaxations have been extended in 2020 for the benefit of the children from the families of the defence and para-military forces who are defending the country against terrorism and insurgencies.
As it is known, the board exams for the academic year have been scheduled to begin from February 15th. The relaxations extended will take effect from this very year.
The board has asked the schools to send in the applications for claiming relaxation for the eligible students to the concerned regional offices by January 31st.
The relaxations that have been now extended were originally advanced in wake of the Pulwama terror attacks of February 2019.
It is reported that the CBSE will allow the students satisfying the relaxation criteria to appear in the exams for any offered subject later, if they choose to do so. The practical exams will be rescheduled as per the request of the students on whom relaxations apply.
