New Delhi: The examination to Class X and Class XII for the schools affiliated to Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) will begin on Thursday.
About 7.5 lakh students will take the Class X and XII exams.
The Class XII exam will end on April 13, 2012 and the Class X exam will end on March 26.
The CBSE for the first time has made the Class X exam optional this year onwards. A large percentage of students have chosen this option. This is seen as an attempt to reduce the exam related stress.
