There was protest reported earlier by Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) demanding extension of the exam date from Chhattisgarh Professional Examination Board (CGPEB). The ABVP members were demanding extension from the CGPEB Examination Controller, Dr Pradeep Chaube, to conduct the exam on June 19 in place of June 15. This was in view that June 15 is a working day and parents of students may not be able to accompany their children. However, the exam was later conducted as per its fixed schedule of June 15.
This time the exam was conducted in two shifts with heightened security. Students were made to arrive one and a half hour before the test at their designated centre. Candidates could download the admit cards on the CGPEB website cgvyapam.choice.gov.in. Students were also required to carry required documents at the exam centres to gain entry into the exam centre. Besides, a postcard size colour photograph was required to be carried. No CGPEB admit cards were sent by post. Students were also frisked using metal detectors, with CCTV installed at examination centres.
