JEE Main 2017 to fall in between CBSE 12th Boards, big worry for students

Last Updated - March 13, 2018

CBSE has released the exam dates for CBSE class 12 board examinations on January 9, 2017. Sudden announcement of examination dates has caused an apprehension among students appearing in class 12 boards. CBSE has postponed the examination dates 1 week from the usual timings due to upcoming state assembly elections.  

The delay and the extension of exam dates have drawn mixed reactions from students, teachers and parents. Due to delay in CBSE class 12 board examination schedule, students are left with less time for the preparation for entrance exams for various UG courses. “The change in schedule has only 3 days for Mathematics which is the toughest subject while Economics has 19 days for preparation”- inner voice of many students.

Frustrated students expressed their concerns as JEE Main is scheduled on April 2, 2017 while many other entrance exams held in mid-April, May and June. Students also vented their anger over the new schedule of CBSE class 12 boards as this year they are getting only a week for JEE Main preparation. While last year there was a time span of around 2 weeks for JEE Main and flat 2 months for other entrance exams.

While some students are in anxiety, at the same time, there are some students representing a feeling of satisfaction that they have more time to prepare for their CBSE class 12 board exams. Unless the board exams are over, students cannot peacefully concentrate on their entrance exams. Entrance exams are a lot of stress for students and they can even spoil them because of hoarding tensions as some students are writing both JEE Main and NEET.
