The CBSE std 10th board exams is reported to be made compulsory for all students again.  The Central Board of Secondary Education(CBSE) is likely to prepare questions for the Class 10th board examinations for all the affiliated schools, going back to the previous system, that was relevant 6 years ago.


The HRD Minister is to discuss the std 10th board examination with the CABE(Central Advisory Board of Education) on Tuesday. The CABE is the highest governing body  for the centre and the state governments in matters of education. Mahendra Nath Pandey, junior minister in the HRD ministry, told HT that the ministry had representatives from a number of states as the exam still remains optional in CBSE schools. He informed that the majority agree with the idea but the final decision was to be taken at the meeting with the CABE.

Earlier in 2011, the CBSE had made it optional for students to participate in the board exams. CBSE runs around 18,000 schools and has approximately 13,000 private schools, all across the country affiliated with it. Quite a few students in the last 5-6 years have opted for the appearing the exam by the school due to the common perception that schools can make the overall results better.

The decision to make the board exams optional was met with severe criticism back in 2011 as the 10th boards are considered to be the stepping stones for higher education. The CBSe is also expected to debate at length about the no-detention policy, according to which no students till they reach class 8th , can be failed or detained for another year in the same class. Pandey said that the states also remain concerned if this affects the quality of education in the country. All the matters regarding the resurrection of the CBSE class 10th board and the no-detention policy is to be discussed with the advisory board and the concerned ministers on October 25

        Really, Good News for the Indian Education System. Now other board Exams, CBSE schools will also give a better education & best result. And all board exams will equal. Now schools are starting to use new technologies for best result. Such school mobile app, school ERP & software. For an example top schools are using Free school Mobile App for preparing to student to schedule according to board exam. Such a mylyapp ( ) which is a free school mobile app.

          The CCE system is often biased and there is no standardisation in the valuation system of school boards. It is open to nepotism and corruption by the school authorities and there is no fool proof system of reevaluation if the student feels it necessary.A centralised mechanism of evaluation with the added checks and corrections is absolutely essential. I congratulate the BJP government in taking up this much needed initiative...Well done
