Till now the practicals were conducted in the concerned school itself, but now onwards board is planning to conduct practicals at another centre. The examination for Theory and Practicals will be held at a single centre. The Board is planning to implement the new rules from the academic session 2019-2020.

The board is considering this because there is a lack of laboratory and adequate means to conduct practicals in some schools. Along with this, the marking scheme of practical can also be changed. Admit cards will also be provided for practicals.

According to the school management, the new system will ruin the education system of schools. The labs and equipment are available according to the ability of children in schools. If any school will be chosen as a centre for practical then it will be challenged to conduct it with limited resources.
