The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) Board exams for the classes 10 and 12 are categorised into two; Practical assessment and Theoretical Examination. Most of the main subjects for both the classes have practical assessments often termed as internals and externals or CBSE Board Practical Exams. Students appearing for Board exams in 2020 should have a look at the CBSE Board Exam 2020 Practical papers’ date sheet, changes made in paper pattern and assessment, and other important changes made by the board.
According to the sources, the Central Board of Secondary Education is planning to schedule the board practical exams from the month of December 2019. However, the dates of the board practical examinations/ internal assessment for class 10 will be decided by the schools, respectively. CBSE only informs the schools of the time frame in which the practical examinations should be conducted.
This means that the schools will decide and provide the date sheets for Board Practical Examinations 2020 respectively. CBSE will allot the institutions for the practical examinations for any private students appearing, once the admit cards are released for the same. The admit cards or roll numbers will be released by the CBSE online through their official website: cbse.nic.in.
