The board after the paper leak incident last year has developed this technology which was tested in compartment exams conducted in July 2018. The question papers in such case are mailed to respective exam centre coordinators with unique user id and password. These papers are printed 30 minutes prior to the commencement of the board examination.

However, the board decided to keep this pilot tested plan only as an emergency or backup plan in case there is any paper leak during the conduction of 2019 board exams.

The board exams for class 10th will be conducted from February 21 to March 29, 2019, starting with vocational subjects. The exams for core subjects will start from March 5, 2019. Read CBSE class 10 date sheet 2019 to know the complete exam schedule.

The class 12 exams will be conducted from February 15 to April 4, 2019. The board exams for class 12 will also start with vocational subjects. Check detailed class 12 date sheet along with revised dates.
