A day before, the board defended the class 10 and 12 board exam 2018 date sheets after an outcry from students about the unfair scheduling of the exams.

As of now, the reason which is under speculation for CBSE's attempt in wrapping the board exams in a month is that the board wants to give the teachers enough time to evaluate the answer sheets.

Apart from the students, even some teachers and parents have expressed disappointment with the date sheet.

This will be the first batch to appear for Class X board examination after the board made a decision to junk the Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation (CCE) and reintroduce the board exams. "I am seriously got nervous after getting the dates and really anxious that it may affect my performance", said, a class-XII student of humanities stream. The English language paper is due to be held on March 05 and after a day's gap students will have to appear for Physics exam.

Similarly, there is only one day gap between Physics and English exam. "Students would get less than a half day time for revising the chapters, which will be quite tough for them". Of them, 1,14,367 would appear as private candidates.

To this, the Central Board officials stated that there are almost 200 subjects and some or other course combination will be held consecutively. The CBSE class X examinations, in which 16,38,552 students are expected to appear, would end on April 4.

Students also pointed out that Mathematics and Computer Science exams are scheduled on March 21 and March 23 respectively, causing difficulty in preparation.

Students have also raised the issue of History and Mathematics exam dates, which have no gap and scheduled on March 20 and March 21 respectively.

Approximately 11.86 lakh students are going to appear for class 12th Board examinations.
