Students writing the Class 10 and 12 Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) board examinations can now easily find their exam centres through a mobile app.

The app, ‘Exam Locator’, launched by the CBSE, helps students to quickly find the exam centre by feeding in the roll number.

Students can easily find the address, images and geo-location of the designated exam centre on the map and know how to reach it.

The CBSE exams begin from March 9.

A student or a parent has to register through their mobile number to receive an OTP (one-time password) number. The OTP will help log into the centre locator app.

The student can 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,” said a statement from CBSE.

This feature enables students to fetch the route map from their current location to the exam centre location.

“Students will get a quick assessment of the time needed to reach the centre,” the statement said.
