CBSE has agreed to use of calculators in examinations for class X and XII but there is a special clause. The use of calculators would be allowed to children with special needs appearing for the CBSE exams, 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.
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 a calculator during examinations,” Bhardwaj said.
