- Earlier on 01st April 2020, the Central Board of Secondary Education announced that they are going to conduct exams only for 29 main subjects.
- The results for the class 12th students will most likely to be released by August-end, this year.
- The CBSE exam schedule has been decided in such an order to ensure that the boards are completed before national-level competitive examinations such as JEE-Mains, which is scheduled from July 18-23, and NEET, which is scheduled on July 26.
