The Central Board of Secondary Education’s (CBSE) Class X and XII exams are beginning on Friday.

While over 12 lakh students will appear for the Class X examination, nearly 10 lakh will sit for the Class XII test.

In all, 12,59,202 students will be sitting for the class X examination, an increase of 6.70 per cent over last year.
