Over 92 per cent attendance was recorded in the board exams held in violence-hit Northeast Delhi on Monday (March 2), the Central Board for Secondary Exams (CBSE) said.

Class 12 and class 10 students had their physics and music papers respectively on Monday. On Sunday, the CBSE had said that any further delay in conducting board exams in violence-affected parts of Northeast Delhi may hamper chances of students in securing admission to professional courses like medical and engineering.

However, the CBSE said it was ready to conduct fresh exams for students who are not able to appear for board exams as per schedule in view of the violence.
