CBSE allows calculators in board exams for children with special needs

Education Information

Children with special needs appearing for the Central Board of Secondary Examination (CBSE) in class 10 or 12 will be able to use basic calculators from this year, officials said.

 

"The board has decided to facilitate students under Children with Special Needs (CSWN) category by permitting the use of a simple basic calculator during Class X and Class XII board examination," CBSE Controller for Examination Sanyam Bhardwaj said in a letter sent to schools. "Calculator will only be allowed to those students who have already been registered under CWSN category for the 2020 examination," he added.

 


To avail the facility, the students have to give a request to the schools by January 28 and principals will have to forward it to concerned regional office of CBSE.

 

"Candidates who will request without an appropriate certificate will not be allowed to use calculator during examinations," Bhardwaj said.

 


The board had in 2018 allowed specially-abled students to use computer or laptops to write their exam.
