The board exam for Class 10 students will begin on February 15 and conclude on March 20. The board exam for Class 12 students will also begin on February 15 and conclude on March 30.
 
The facility is part of the Board's efforts to extend concessions to Person with Benchmark Disabilities for Class 10 and 16 examinations conducted by the CBSE in accordance with the Rights of Persons with Disabilities Act -2016, the circular said.
 
"In addition to Concession/Exemptions being extended as contained in circular no CBSE/COORD/112233/2019 Dated 12th April 2019, Board has decided to facilitate such students by permitting use of  Simple Basic Calculator during Class X & Class XII Board's Examinations," the circular said.

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 the CBSE.
 
"Candidates who will request without appropriate certificate will not be allowed to use calculator during examinations," Dr Bhardwaj said.
