New Delhi: CBSE class 10 and 12 board exams will be held in the first two weeks i.e., between 1 to 15 July after the long break due to the nationwide lockdown scenario. The detailed schedule would be released by the board soon.
As per the information available, the CBSE board is likely to announce the dates for July. However, it has not been verified as yet by the board officials.
