In recent years,CBSE has earned a rapport for being flexible and adjusting itself according to the students’ needs.In the latest update,CBSE has announced that the students who are to appear for 10th and 12th standard board exams and fall under the category of CWSN (Candidates With Special Needs) shall be allowed to use laptops and computers to write their exams.
Students willing to take up this opportunity will be required to submit a medical certificate prescribed by a registered medical practitioner/psychological consultant,stating the grounds for such a request.
RULES AND REGULATIONS FOR USE OF LAPTOPS/COMPUTERS
Such students,however,will have to arrange for their own laptops/computers.The laptops/computers shall be duly formatted and will be allowed for use in the examination only after being inspected by a computer teacher.Also,these devices shall not have any active internet services.In case such an arrangement is required,the request will have to be made in advance by the candidate which can be done by sending a communication with required documents to the Centre Superintendent through school.
The use of these electronic gadgets shall be limited to typing answers,enlarging font size of questions and listening to questions.The invigilator shall sign on the printouts of these answer sheets.In case the student does not want scribe facility,the board has also agreed to the provision for a reader who could read the question paper for the student.
Apart from this,the board is considering 50% relaxation in attendance for such students.
