For the year 2019, the board will conduct the Class 10 and 12 examinations from February and has released a list of vocational subjects that will be conducted during that period. As per the official notification, the board mentioned that it is following the Delhi High Court order that directs Delhi University and CBSE to ensure from the commencing academic year, the result of CBSE, including re-evaluation, is taken into account while determining the cut-off date for admission to colleges of the University of Delhi.
