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.

This year CBSE has provided facilities to schools to generate 'online roll no. wise' list of candidates appearing in 2013 Class X and XII examinations. School can also generate online admit card for their regular students appearing in this year's Board tests.

From this year, CBSE will introduce 'value based questions' in all major subjects for Classes X and XII up to 3-5 marks.

CBSE has also decided to reduce the number of chances for compartment for Class XII to three from five. Likewise, the number of attempts for 'improvement of performance' for Class X has been reduced to one from five.
