Students express disappointment with datesheet, request relook
The CBSE yesterday announced the schedule of exam dates for class 10 and 12 board exams 2018. But rather than making students happy, the datesheet has left them disappointed with many complaining that some exams have been scheduled without a break. For example, students of humanities stream have three exams back-to-back — psychology on April 5, political science on April 6, and legal studies on April 7. Similarly students appearing for Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) will have to gear up for physical education exam the following day. Parents and teachers have also called for changes in the datesheet.
Revise datesheet, students demand
Please revise datesheet. Not fair for humanities #CBSEDateSheet

And the stress has only increased
And we talk of not putting pressure on students ! What are the students supposed to do with this kind of a stressful date sheet for 12th boards esp for some main papers like Economics , Physics etc ? Can somebody in this country spare a thought for the students please ! #CBSE https://t.co/D9IMvu0bwL
