CBSE, or Central Board of Secondary Education, is the main education board in India, also followed by scores of Indian schools outside India, including in the UAE.
There are around 20 centres in the UAE where pupils sit for the exams, held from beginning March to mid-April this year.
Class 12 exams are seen as especially significant as they are the school-leaving tests whose results weight heavily of students' university prospects.
Almost 2.8 million pupils took CBSE exams this year.
