The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) board exams for vocational subjects of class 10 and class 12 will be held in the half of February. The CBSE has decided to hold exams for Skill Education (Vocational) and related subjects in second half of February for the ensuing Board exams of Classes 10 and 12 to be held in 2019.
The board clarified that exams for all the Core Academic subjects, such as Languages, Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Geography, Economics, Business studies, Accountancy, Economics etc., will continue to be held in the month of March at the external examinations centres fixed by the Board.
The High Court of Delhi has directed Delhi University and CBSE to ensure from the commencing academic year, that the result of CBSE, including results of re-evaluation "are taken into account whilst determining the cut-off date for admission to colleges of the University of Delhi". The HRD Minister, Shri Prakash Javadekar, had directed CBSE and Delhi University to hold consultations, and to make efforts in this direction.
There are 40 Skill Education Vocational subjects being offered in class 12th and 15 in class 10th. There are also certain other related subjects such as Typography and Computer Applications (English), Web applications, Graphics, Office Communication, etc. where there are very few students, in fact, less than 500. These will also be included in February exams as these subjects have larger practical component, and shorter theory papers. This slight advancement of date sheet of the board will facilitate slightly earlier declaration of both – the main results and the re-evaluation results - as compared to earlier years.
In class 12th, compulsory subject is language only, while in class 10th the compulsory subjects are Languages, Mathematics, Science and Social Sciences. CBSE does not have any streams or fixed combination of subjects at senior secondary level. The students are free to choose any
combination of subjects in addition to the mandatory subjects.
