account of students not taking studies seriously and lack of Board
Examination was poorly reflecting the quality of Education.

Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) released the CBSE
Class 12 Board Examination 2017 Date Sheet last week. Soon after the
date sheet was released, parents and teachers took to the internet to
complain about the date sheet. Parents and teachers complained that JEE
Main and CBSE Class 12 Board papers were too close and presented how
unhappy they were with the date sheet. Such has been the chorus that
reports of CBSE planning to revise the Class 12 Date sheet to
accommodate JEE Main examination have surfaced. Whether they are rumours
or a fact continues to baffle parents, students and teachers. We
reached out to sources in the CBSE and hereby confirm that there is no
truth behind the alleged reports. CBSE Class 12 date sheet, is in fact,
not going to be revised.
