CBSE eases exam norms for kids of jawans

The Central Bureau of Secondary Education (CBSE) has announced relaxations for the children of military and paramilitary personnel fighting terrorism and left-wing extremism.The relaxations come in the wake of the Pulwama terror attack that killed 40 Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) in Jammu and Kashmir last week. Such students will also be allowed to change the centre of examination in the same city or to another city. For its part, the Delhi government’s Directorate of Education (DoE) announced that children of personnel killed in Pulwama can appear for compartment examinations, which will be held in April and May, if they can’t appear in the ongoing annual exams this year. This will be applicable only to students studying in government schools of DoE.
