The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has assured all the students in Delhi, who have missed their papers due to the violence that happened in North East Delhi, that it will conduct fresh exams for them. The Board has postponed exams scheduled in the north east part and the affected parts of Delhi till February 29.
However, the exams in rest of Delhi will be conducted as scheduled, an official statement from the Board said.
All the exams will be held as per schedule in all centres from March 2 onwards, the Board added.

The Board exams are also going on in schools affiliated to CISCE. According to an official from the CISCE none of their schools are situated in the North East part of Delhi. So there is no question of postponement of board exams.
