Class XII Board Exams in Punjab to Start Tomorrow
27 February, 2018: The Punjab School Education Board (PSEB) will be conducting the class XII board exams starting tomorrow, 28th Feb 2018. The exams are to be conducted until the 24th of March, 2018. The timing of the exams are from 2 pm to 5:15 pm. The detailed time table for the exams can be viewed here.
This year onwards, students with disabilities are being given services of writers by the PSEB. Earlier, students availing the services of writers had to pay a fee of INR 100 per subject. This fee will be now borne by the Punjab School Education Board.
Earlier, there was an uproar over the allocation of exam centres, with students being assigned centres almost seven to eight kilometres away. This went against the directive from the board which had asked state education officers to ensure that no centre is located beyond a distance of three kilometres.
This year onwards, the PSEB has brought about a host of changes including the introduction of an Evaluation Marking App. In previous years, the marks on answer sheets as corrected by teachers was sent to the board in Chandigarh via post. This year onwards, teachers on duty for checking answer sheets (each teacher gets 75 sheets), can upload all valid information like numbers of papers checked, marks of students, etc., on the app itself, which will directly reach the board itself.
The PSEB is expected to declare the results in the month of May, 2018 but this is a tentative date and the final dates have not been announced by the board, yet. Students can download the ExamResults android app or visit this website to keep themselves notified of any exam- and result-related notifications.
We wish all the PSEB class XII board exam candidates the very best for their exams!
