Children with special needs will get relaxations/concessions in examinations from 2020 as defined in the Rights of Persons with Disabilities Act, 2016. The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) today released a list regarding the same.
“It has been observed that neither schools nor students are fully aware of these exemptions. They are not following the correct way of seeking available relaxations during their course of studies and examinations. Hence, the CBSE has issued an advisory to schools as per the guidelines of Inclusive Education of Children with Disabilities (IECD),” the board said.
