NEW DELHI: The Central Board of Secondary Education has warned students against a fake letter claiming that board exams 2024 have been postponed due to farmers’ protest. The board clarified in a social media post that the letter is fake and misleading and that CBSE has not taken any such decision.

“It has come to the notice of the board that because of farmers’ protest, there are problem faced out by the board, they are unable to appear in the schools as per the government guidelines board exams of class XII has been postponed, as soon as you will be informed with new dates,” the fake notice said.

The fake CBSE letter on postponement of CBSE Class 12 board exams 2024 also listed down the process for making a request to change the exam dates. It said that students will have to request the schools to change the dates for theory exams or practicals or both. While making the request, students will have to inform the schools about the city they would like to appear for the exam in.
