In a notification released on April 1, the CBSE has said that in the current situation prevailing in the country it is difficult to announce a new schedule for the pending exams. It also said that it will give notice of about 10 days before starting the exams.

In this context, it is further informed that the Board will give notice of about 10 days to all stakeholders before starting the Board examinations," the CBSE has said in the notice.
