CBSE is a national level educational board under which many private and government schools are affiliated. Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) is the most popular board in India. The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has released the exam dates for class 12 boards yesterday. As per the timetable, the 12th class examinations will be started from 5th March 2018. For the year 2018, practical exams will be started from 16th January and will be conducted till 25th February 2018. Every year around 20-30 lakh students appear in the exams.

After the release of the date sheet, the students are anxious. The science students of class 12 are tensed because the examination for Physical Education will be held on April 9, 2018, and the exam for JEE Main 2018 in Offline Mode is due to be conducted on April 08, 2018. This gives no time to the candidates for rest and revision. Similarly, a single day gap between English and Physics paper (English is on March 5 and Physics for Class 12 is scheduled for March 7) was also a point of concern. However, there is a solution for every problem. The JEE Main 2018 Application Correction facility is available until January 22, 2018. The candidates can try and change the mode of JEE Main 2018 from pen and paper to computer based exam.
The scenario is also 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. Same was the plight of humanities students with no gap between political science and psychology papers. The political science paper is scheduled for April 6 while Psychology is scheduled for April 5.
However, CBSE have denied the possibility of changes. Replying to the complaints of the students and also some parents, CBSE officials have responded that “There are around 200 subjects out of which students can have any combination. Students have such subject combination that science students take up one from the humanities and commerce subjects and vice-versa. So, no matter how much we try some subjects might not get as many gap days as others,”
Upset with the examination dates, several turned to Twitter.

Cannot believe that there is only one day gap before Physics and Computer science, this is not fair. We, students need time to revise, this being one of the most important exam of our lives #CBSEDateSheet #CBSE @CBSEWorld

I think there should be on change in #CBSEDateSheet that physical education shouldn't be taken on 9th april as a very big headache will move out on 8th april, i.e., #jeemain2018, so atleast one day should be given to students to be relax otherwise they will not perform well.

All the very best to the students appearing in board examinations. Stay calm and study hard and you shall succeed. Also, what do you think about less time gap? Is it right or should the candidates get more time between the exams? And does CBSE need to change the exam date for JEE Main and Physical Education test? Let know now your thoughts in the comment section below.
