The Central Board of Secondary Examination (CBSE) is going to resume the answer sheet evaluation soon in the middle of lockdown itself, but only after due notice has been provided by the CBSE Controller of Examination. This is good news for students who are eagerly waiting for the CBSE Board Exam Results 2020.
"The board is yet to start evaluation work and it will begin with due notification by CE which will also be put up on the official CBSE website," a CBSE official told us.

'1.5 to 2 months needed for CBSE paper evaluation'
In an exclusive interview with India Today on April 30, CBSE Secretary Anurag Tripathy had said that due to the Covid-19 lockdown which has now been extended for the third time and is set to continue till May 17, CBSE has been forced to put a complete halt to paper evaluation.
"We will need 1.5 to 2 months to carry out the paper evaluation. As soon as we get the advisory from the Central government, we can start off the paper evaluation process while maintaining social distancing," he had said.
What is the CBSE paper evaluation status as of now?
The CBSE paper evaluation had started off around a week after the board exams started in February.
But after the Covid-19 pandemic started to spread its roots in India, the process had to be stopped completely after 15 days of paper evaluation.
Around 70% of CBSE answer sheets still need to be evaluated even though some of them were done in the 15 days of evaluation before the Covid-19 lockdown was imposed, Tripathy told us.
There are around 35 lakh students who appear for board exams and 2 crore CBSE answer sheets need to be checked, said the CBSE secretary.
He also said that certain state boards such as MP Board had already started off answer sheet evaluation while maintaining social distancing by keeping two to four teachers in a single room only.
What the HRD Minister said about board exam answer sheet evaluation
On April 28, HRD Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank met the education ministers of all the states and advised them to start off with the paper evaluation of state board exams.
He also asked the ministers to make provisions for CBSE to carry out their answer sheet evaluation in the respective states as well.
