NEW DELHI: The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has directed all the school heads and exam centre superintendents to print the CBSE question papers in only one language - English or Hindi. The board has informed the school heads and centre superintendents to take the necessary action on the same.

“It has come to the notice that some of the examination centres are printing both English and Hindi versions of question papers and thereafter these are being distributed to the students. This is not as per the directions supplied by the CBSE,” read the CBSE official notice.

“It is desired that only the English version of question paper is to be printed first and supplied to the students. Hindi version question paper is printed only if any candidate is in need of Hindi version of the question paper. Same way where HIndi medium has been adopted by the candidates, the examination centres should first print the Hindi version of the question paper and provide the same to the students. English version question paper should be printed only if it is required by any student,” read the notice further.

CBSE is holding term 1 exams for Class 10 and 12. The board is conducting the term 1 board exams in offline mode. Each question paper is been conducted for a duration of 90 minutes. This year, students need to fill their answers in OMR sheets.
