- You have to appear for the 2025 12th board exams.
- Registration for class 12th board exam starts around September 2024 (check CBSE website for exact dates).
- Aim to register before late October to avoid extra fees.
- Schools might not offer classes for private students, so focus on self-study or coaching.

**
Remember
**
, these are tentative dates based on last year. Keep an eye on the CBSE website ( https://www.cbse.gov.in/ ) for the accurate and official announcement.
