CBSE app to locate exam centre

The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) on Tuesday announced a mobile-based application which will help the board examination candidates to locate their examination centre.

“The ‘Exam Locator App’ will help students in quickly knowing their examination centre on the basis of their roll number,” the school board’s spokesperson Rama Sharma said in a statement.

A student can easily find the address, images and geo location of the designated examination centre and know how to reach there with the use of the said mobile application.

“This mobile application has been developed for the students appearing for the CBSE Class X and XII board examinations beginning March 9 as a sequel to several IT initiatives taken by the Board,” she added.

Sharma said a student or a parent has to register through mobile number to receive a one time password (OTP) to avail the facilities.

“The OTP will help log on to the Centre Locator App. The student or parent can then access information by selecting the option X or XII and entering the roll number. The student’s information, address and photograph of the exam centre will be displayed on the screen for easy identification by the students,” she said.

“How to Reach” feature in the mobile application will enable students to fetch the route map from their current location to their examination centre location, she added.
