CBSE to ensure closest Exam centre for JEE Main, NEET, NET, and class 12 Board exams. Exam centre for the Board Exams will be allocated within the radius of 8 KM from their respective schools. CBSE is presently working on an online system for nearest test centre allocation to the students.
According to senior officials, through this approach, CBSE can also use online mapping system of the schools which is current not available. Through the online mapping system, the students can find their centres easily.
- CBSE is looking forward to making any changes in the exam centres so that the candidates appearing for the NET, NEET, and other board exams need not travel so long and waste their useful time.
- There have been few instances in the past where students used to go to long distances exam centres to appear in the tests. Sometimes students also made their physical presence to check the exam centres before the day of the exam. So, by using this practice, they used to waste their time a lot. But CBSE has planned a new approach to removing, the hurdles of long distance exam centre from the students.
Schools to submit Infrastructure Details for Exam Centre
Only 2000 schools out of 14,000 private schools have submitted all the information to CBSE. The last date of submitting all the details to CBSE is November 30, 2016. There are 18,000 schools affiliated to the CBSE including Kendriya Vidyalaya. Out of which, 3000 schools have uploaded infrastructure details as well. This information from the schools will help the candidates to enable GIS maps on their mobile phones and use its facilities too. The Online system will also map many other facilities such as the infrastructure facilities of the schools, drinking facilities, lavatories, etc that are present in the school. According to a source, in the past exam centres, it was sometimes found that the students had to write their exams sitting on KG children chairs.
CBSE had made a mandatory rule on September 29, 2016, that all the schools affiliated to CBSE prepare an annual report and make comprehensive information including the details of infrastructure, fee structure, teachers etc. Once CBSE gets all the mandatory data it can use it to plan the future projects.
