CBSE started helpline from February 1 till April 16
Don’t waste time stressing about it, rush to your school/ college with a written application requesting for a duplicate of your hall ticket. Knowing your seat number eases the application procedure. You will also be required to pay a duplicate hall ticket issuance fee of Rs 50. Your letter, along with one from the school, will be sent to the board, and you will receive a duplicate copy as soon as possible.
“The CBSE (Central Board of Secondary Education) started its helpline on February 1 to help students deal with anxiety and syllabus issues, suggest time management techniques and provide career guidance,” Rama Sharma, spokesperson of the exam controlling body, told agency.
“It is our first phase of counselling for those appearing for board examinations this year,” she added. The exams begin in March and end mid-April.
“There is a make or break junction synonymous with board exams. Students need to make realistic evaluation of the situation. We make them understand that exams are not the end but just another milestone in their lives,” Sharma said.
The helpline can be accessed at toll-free number 1800-180-3456 between 8 a.m. and midnight. The number will be operational till April 16.
