The Central Board Search Education (CBSE) is yet to release the dates for the CBSE board exams. As the students are in the dark, it is pertinent for the students to differentiate between facts and rumours.
A fake datesheet has been in circulation for quite some time on social media. The document states that the CBSE Class 12 Board Examinations 2021 would start from March 15.
In such cases of rumours, PIB Fact Check always comes to the rescue. It alerted to the social media users that the document is fake, and there is no such news.
