CBSE revises class 12th date sheet; PE paper shifted to April 13
Bachan Thakur, 17 Jan 2018, #JEE Main

Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has revised the dates of class 12th Physical Education (PE) Paper which was earlier slated to be held on April 9. According to an official notification released by CBSE, Physical Education paper of class 12th will now be held on April 13, 2018 (10.30 am). This move by CBSE has come days after many students have raised their voices on Twitter and written to MHRD and CBSE against the inconsiderate planning of class 12th exam schedule. However, no other paper of class 12th or 10th has been shifted or rescheduled. Thus, apart from the paper of PE of class 12th, rest all the other papers of class 10th and 12th will be held as per the initial schedule declared by CBSE.

The earlier date of April 9 (of class 12th PE paper) was carrying a challenge for thousands of students who would have to appear in JEE Main 2018 Paper I and II on April 8 at 9.30 am and 2.30 pm respectively and then had to also appear in PE paper of class 12th the very next day on April 9. Without any gap in both the papers, it would have been really a challenge for many students who would had to travel long distances to appear in JEE Main 2018 and then prepare and appear for class 12th PE paper the next day.

However, this announcement of rescheduling the PE paper has come as a relief to many students who would be taking both – JEE Main 2018 and class 12th PE paper.
