CBSE has not released new dates yet, will be out on 18th May 2020

Spread the truth:

Claim: An image of a document is going around social media platforms claiming to be the date sheet of examination of 12th class. According to the document, the exams will be held from July 1, 2020 till July 15, 2020.

The caption of the document reads ‘Central board of secondary examination | Senior school certificate examination 2020 | Date Sheet for remaining and rescheduled examination in India and North-East district of Delhi’

However, this is false information and CBSE has not yet released the date sheet for examination.


Tweets attached with this false date sheet was shared on Twitter.

Even a video on YouTube was made regarding the same.





The date sheet shared online is fake. The government sources confirmed that no date sheet has been released yet by CBSE or the HRD Ministry as claimed.

Even the Press Information Bureau (PIB) tweeted and clarified that this information is false.

The new date sheet was going to be released on 16th May at 5 PM but due to some additional technical aspects, now the date sheet will be released on 18th May 2020. Union Cabinet Minister for Human Resource Development, Dr. Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank tweeted about the same clearing the confusion.

The tweet is archived here.

In another tweet he said, “सीबीएसई बोर्ड परीक्षाओं की डेटशीट को अंतिम रूप देने से पहले कुछ अतिरिक्त तकनीकी पहलुओं को ध्यान में रख रहा है, इस वजह से आज 5 बजे होने वाली कक्षा 10 वीं और 12 वीं परीक्षा की डेटशीट की घोषणा अब सोमवार (18-05-2020) तक होगी।“

Translated to English: CBSE is taking into consideration some additional technical aspects before finalizing the datesheet of board exams, due to this, the datesheet of class 10th and 12th examination to be held today at 5 pm is now announced on Monday (18-05-2020).


Hence, the time table in the posts is fake and not relevant to CBSE examinations.
