HP Board 12th Class Date Sheet 2020: Geography Exam Dates Released
Himachal Pradesh Board of Secondary Education (HPBOSE) recently announced that the remaining Geography exam for Class 12 Board is scheduled for June 8, 2020.
According to reports, the Himachal board made further arrangements to accommodate 4,400 students in 3030 exam centres which also includes students of State Open Schools.
The examination dates were fixed by HPBOSE post the lockdown 5.0 guidelines released. HP Board Chairman, Suresh Soni further stated that students who returned to their hometown after the first lockdown was announced can choose the nearest exam centre.
In such cases, required preventive measures will be taken in terms of sanitization, wearing masks as well as maintaining social distancing.
Himachal Board further stated that exams for subjects like Yoga, Vocational Subjects and Computer will not be conducted. Instead, objective marks will be given based on scores of compulsory subjects.
Also, the evaluation process for Class 12 board examination is in its last leg and the results for Class 10 will be released by the second week of June. Due to the COVID-19 crisis and considerable delay of exams, this year the Class 10 results will be declared first rather than Class 12.
By May 2020 HPBOSE began the evaluation of both Class 10 and 12 exams. More than 6000 teachers were allotted answer sheets for evaluation. They were asked to return the answer sheets within the next 10 days.
Earlier the Himachal Pradesh Board had announced grace marks for incorrect questions appearing in Class 10 and Class 12 board exams of 2020. Grace marks will be given in Sanskrit and Urdu papers of Class 10 and Chemistry, Biology, Accountancy and Business Studies for Class 12.
