No advancing of board exams without consultation: CBSE
Delhi, June 25, 2017: The class X and XII board exams will not be advanced before consulting various stakeholders including schools, the CBSE has said.
“The purpose is to have more time for evaluation and bring quality. However, there will be no decision on the advancing the exams without taking stakeholders on board,” a senior CBSE official said.
Various schools affiliated with the CBSE have expressed apprehensions over the central board’s recent announcement that it was considering the idea of advancement of board examination to February from the existing schedule of March.
The idea has cropped up following complaints of faulty evaluation process prompting the board to set up two committees to analyse the process and suggest measures to rectify the loopholes.
“The idea will be studied taking into consideration various processes and preparations in administration of exams,” the official added.
