The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) board exams for Class X and XII will begin on Thursday. For Class XII students, the first paper will be of English and for class X pupils, it will be the painting exam. Tense students in the capital are buried in books, some in a race to finish their courses while others to revise. Doctors, however, advise them not to over-study and get a good night's sleep. With English being the first exam, the stress levels are low among the students.
