NEW DELHI: The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) will hold the board exams in Delhi as per schedule on Tuesday, (February 25, 2020). The board had announced on Monday that there is no change in the exam schedule and it will be conducted as planned.
Reports about CBSE cancelling the board exams in the capital spread after violence erupted in Northeast following clashes between CAA and anti-CAA protestors.
The board later confirmed that there is no delay and change in the schedule through a tweet.
“Exams tomorrow only in western Delhi at 18 centres. No change in CBSE exams scheduled for tomorrow as there are no centres in the rest of Delhi,’’ the CBSE said in the tweet.
