GSHSEB 10th, 12th board exams 2021 to be held in May, date sheet expected next week – Times of India

AHMEDABAD: The Gujarat Secondary and Higher Secondary Education Board (GSHSEB) is set to announce the schedule for class X and class XII board examinations by next week.

The board is considering two dates May 10 and May 17 and is likely to choose any one of the two options and announce the exam time table by next week, said a GSHSEB official.

Some 10.5 lakh candidates are likely to register for class X board exams this year whereas for class XII general stream an estimated 5.30 lakh candidates are likely to take the exams this year. In the case of class XII science about 1.50 lakh candidates are expected to appear in the exam.

Earlier, the board had announced 30% reduction in syllabus and even made changes in the examination pattern. Usually, the exams are held in the month of March but are delayed this year due to Covid-19 pandemic.

This year, the number of exam centres will be increased from 5,500 to 6,700 to maintain social distancing norms. This will also result into the number of exam rooms going up from 60,000 to 75,000 this year. About 60% of the exams centres fall in rural areas.

According to the revised exam format, 50% of marks will be for the OMR (optical mark reader) answers and 50% for descriptive questions for class XII science students whereas for class XII general stream as well as class X candidates, the objective questions will carry 30% marks instead of 20% earlier.
