The CBSE said that the datesheet has been released nearly three months ahead of the examination so that students can make their study plan and overcome the problems faced during pandemic.

The class 12 exams will be held in two shifts to reduce the number of days of conducting exams.

"Class-XII examinations would be conducted in 2 shifts to reduce the no. of days in conducting examinations. The second shift, examinations will be conducted in subjects which are not offered by the students in schools situated abroad," CBSE tweeted.

Class 10 exams will be held from 10:30 am to 1:30 pm. CBSE will conduct examinations in 75 subjects in class 10 and in 111 subjects in class 12.

CBSE said in a tweet, "Sufficient time has been given between the examinations of two main subjects in both classes X & XII. This will reduce the stress of the students and help them in better preparations for the examinations."

The CBSE further said that the datesheet has been prepared in such a manner that on any day, the total number of students in an examination centre is limited. This will help the examination centers to strictly follow the Covid-19 safety norms.

"No school staff who has worked in morning shift will be given duty in afternoon shift following safety guidelines," the CBSE added.
