On Friday, 5th March 2021, the updated CBSE Board Exam 2021 schedule was released. CBSE Class 10 and 12 board exams are scheduled to begin on 4th May, 2021. The exams will go on till 7th June for Class 10 and 14th June for Class 12. With this CBSE news update, students can heave a sigh of relief. Class 10 and Class 12 students can now plan their revision as per the newly released dates.


Shift in 2021 CBSE exam dates

Remember, the CBSE website is the best source for latest updates in exams and exam dates. Earlier, India’s Education Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal had shared updates on Twitter about the upcoming CBSE exams. Several fake date sheets showed up after that. When you look at the new exam dates released by the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE), you will find that some exam dates have changed. For example, the CBSE Class 12 Physics exam which was earlier scheduled for 13th May, 2021, has been shifted to 8th June, 2021.

As per the new Date Sheet, English and Hindi exams will be held on 6th May and 10th May, respectively. Exams for languages such as Odia, Kannada, and Lepcha will be held on 4th May.
