The evaluation of CBSE class 10, 12 board exam papers will begin tomorrow. Keeping in view the COVID-19 lockdown, it has been decided that teachers will evaluate the answer copies at their home. As a general practice, teachers go to schools or centres to check the answer copies of board exams.
Over 1.5 crore answer copies will be evaluated in 3,000 evaluation centres which have been identified by the CBSE, said Education Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal ‘Nishank’ today.
Mr Pokhriyal said that answer copies will be sent to teachers for evaluation from these evaluation centres.

Special permission has been granted for the operation of the evaluation centres. The 16 regional offices of CBSE have been permitted to function without restrictions in Green and Orange zone and with limited restrictions in the Red zone.
“As far as transportation of answer sheets to the residences of evaluators is concerned, there is no such restriction on the movement except in areas falling in the containment zone,” the Home Ministry has said in an official letter addressed to Anita Karwal, Secretary, Department of School Education and Literacy, MHRD.
“We are grateful to the Home Ministry for granting us permission to start evaluation process and send answer copies to the residence of teachers,” Mr Pokhriyal said.
“We will complete the evaluation process within 50 days,” he added.
CBSE will release the board exam result in August.
So far, the CBSE has conducted the class 10, 12 board exams in 173 subjects.
CBSE will conduct the remaining board exam, which was postponed due to coronavirus lockdown, from July 1 to July 15. The exam will be held for 29 main subjects only.
