Meanwhile, the Central Board of Secondary Education has launched a user-friendly, web-based feature under E –CBSE for Class 10 and 12.

Class 12 students are also writing their exams with an estimated 1067900 students registering for the Senior Secondary School Certificate Examination which commenced on March 1.

“There were two pre-board exams and extensive preparation exams conducted by the schools, so I am very confident that my daughter will not be tensed much and will do well in the exams” said Nandhini Rai, whose daughter appeared for her first exam on Wednesday.

CBSE has facilitated sample question papers and previous year question papers to help the students in their preparation for the exams through different sites. “The exam was quite easy and the reference and practice of sample papers helped me a lot to be stress free and for time management” said Aditya Singh, studying at Delhi Public School, Bangalore East. An estimate of 2860 differently abled students also appeared for the AISSCE.
