CBSE has 2 options for taking the exam

Under this option, 1 month for pre-exam, 2 months for declaring exam and result and 45 days for compartment exam will be seen.

2. Second option: In the second option, it is suggested to set a time of one and half hour (90 minutes) for the examination of all the subjects. It is also advisable to ask only objective or short questions in the paper. Under this, the exam can be held in 45 days only.
