All computer teachers/staff were supposed to report to the examination centre by 7:30 AM on all exam days to handle downloading and printing of the encrypted question papers.
The schools were also asked to arrange adequate A4 sheets -- at least 10 pages per candidate.
"On exam day, the question paper will be available on the CBSE website. The same user ID and password as used for registration can be used. After downloading the zip file of the question paper, the centres have to use the password provided by the regional office minutes before and extract it," the note read.
The board had directed those schools which do not have required facilities to hire the same, and centre superintendents to personally supervise the arrangements and ensure adequate security arrangements.
It also instructed schools to ensure they can print over 2,000 sheets of paper between 7.15 am, when the email will be sent, and 10.15 am on Monday, when Class 10 students are set to write Sanskrit paper and Class 12 students Hindi Core paper.
To ensure there are no glitches in at least the delivery of the papers, the CBSE has instructed exam centres to organise high-speed internet and even dongles as backup. It has asked them to hire generators as well.
