In order to ensure that students taking the Class XII board exams, which are scheduled to be held between July 1 and July 15, do not face any inconvenience in transportation, the UT Education Department has sought information from all CBSE-affiliated schools so as to provide them with the facility.
Transport Director Uma Shanker said, “We haven’t yet received any official intimation as to how many students will be ferried to exam centres on Chandigarh Transport Undertaking (CTU) buses. We will see how to ensure social distancing in the seating arrangement.”
The CBSE exams will be conducted in respective schools of the candidates instead of examination centres due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
The board will allow a change in examination centre only if the candidate has shifted or is residing in some other district away from the school.
The board said, “It’ll be the school’s responsibility to contact students to know whether they have shifted to some other district and would like to avail of the facility of change in examination centre.”
