NAGPUR: In its ongoing effort to keep board exam candidates safe from coronavirus, CBSE is preparing to rejig its exam room seating pattern in a major way. Sources told TOI that the number of students in a room may be restricted to only 12 from the current cap of 24. This change is going to be put into effect for exams scheduled for Tuesday and Wednesday.
According to the plan, a minimum distance of one metre has to be kept between two candidates. Only one invigilator will be appointed for one room of 12 candidates. As per sources, the schools have already been informed to get the plan going. The schools have been told to “treat this message as urgent” and start work of preparing seating arrangements in the hall.
Though the message came late in the evening, schools were not complaining.
