NIOS 10th and 12th Exam 2019 dates have been changed by the National Institute of Open School, as per the latest update. The decision to revise the NIOS 10th and 12th Exam 2019 time table was taken following the declaration of Lok Sabha election dates by the Election Commission of India. Keeping in mind convenience of the students in checking the revised NIOS Board Exam 2019 datesheet, the Board has made it available online on the official website. Candidates who will be appearing for NIOS Board exam can visit the official website of the board i.e. nios.ac.in to download the revised exam datesheet.
According to the revised NIOS 10th and 12th Exam 2019 datesheet, the Class 12 / Senior Secondary Board Exams will commence from 2nd April 2019 with Sanskrit Paper and end on 4th May 2019 with various different papers. Similarly, for Secondary Exam for Class 10 students, the NIOS Revised Datesheet 2019 confirms that the exam will begin on 3rd April 2019 with Employability Skills paper and continue until 4th May 2019. All the exams for NIOS 10th and 12th Board Exam 2019 will be held in the afternoon session i.e. 2:30 PM to 5:30 PM.
Commenting upon the change the NIOS Board Exam 2019 dates, Chairman of NIOS, Chandra Bhushan Sharma, said that the board has decided to reschedule only those exams which were clashing with the poll dates and not postpone the entire exam. “We did not wish to postpone the entire exam as it would have delayed the results. To ensure the results are announced on time, we are just changing the dates for some exams which were clashing with poll dates. A revised time-table will be put up on the site for students,” said Sharma.
He also said that another reason for postponement of the NIOS Board Exam 2019 is that the NIOS exams are held in CBSE Schools, which are not available during the election period. Every year, around 3.75 lakh students appear for Class 10 and Class 12 NIOS Exam, throughout the country. Therefore, the board had to reschedule the NIOS 10th and 12th exam dates keeping the logistical challenges in mind. The NIOS result of examination is likely to be declared in six weeks after the completion of the examination.REGISTER FOR RESULTS UPDATES
