The Delhi government has postponed Class X and XII Board exams at 86 centres in view of the outbreak of violence in north-east Delhi. However, peace prevails in remaining areas apart from north-east Delhi and exams are underway there.

Students who reached R.K.Puram’s Sarvodaya School to write their exams expressed their concern at the current situation in the national capital. They said one centre is earmarked for Board exams but students’ difficulties increase due to sudden change of centre and postponement of exams.

According to parents, students have to work very hard for Board exams and postponement of exams at the eleventh hour causes a lot of problems.

Meanwhile, the CBSE said that exams will be conducted at all exam centres in areas apart from north-east Delhi and new exam dates for students in violence-affected areas will be announced soon.
