Fresh examinations will be conducted for Class 10 and 12 Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) students in the national capital who failed to appear for their papers on February 26 due to the violence in northeast Delhi, said an official.

Reports suggest the board has already sought details of students who failed to appear for exams due to the prevailing situation in the city.

“The board has asked school principals to send the details to regional offices concerned of the CBSE of all such students of Class 10 and 12 who have missed out on the exams so far in Delhi, due to these difficult conditions,” said CBSE Secretary Anurag Tripathi.
