Due to the covid lockdown, the syllabus for both class 10 and 12 exams has been reduced by 30 percent. The board exams will have 33 percent internal choice questions.
The majority of the states have reopened the schools for Class 10 and 12 to prepare for the upcoming board examinations. The schools will conduct the practical exams from March 1.
The exams will be held following the COVID-19 pandemic protocols, wearing a face mask, carrying hand sanitizers will be a must and social distancing will be maintained.
