Amendments in CBSE exam byelaws: Mumbai Students at benefit

The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has made changes to the examination byelaws which will be an advantage to the local students of Mumbai. Students can now choose to appear for the school-based class X examinations even if their school does not offer higher secondary education. These changes were made by the examination committee at a meeting conducted on May 04, 2012 and was approved at another meeting on June 04, 2012.

Many schools were forcefully issuing leaving certificates to maintain their 100% pass percentage in the board exams. The Board has now enforced a rule where the school can issue leaving certificates only at the parent’s request or in case of migration.

Another change in these byelaws includes allowing extra time or scribes to students with any sort of disability for Class X and XII board exams.

These changes will prove to be very advantageous to Mumbai students especially as there are very few higher secondary CBSE schools. Now, students can apply to higher secondary CBSE schools based on the scores obtained in their own school exams. Earlier, even if the students wished to continue their studies in the CBSE board they were forced to choose the state-board examinations.

The board-based examinations are evaluated by external examiners and the school-based examinations are assessed by the school teachers. Students who wish to switch board will only take up the board-examinations; other students prefer to take up the school-based examinations. CBSE exams are being preferred by many aspirants who are preparing to appear for the new common medical entrance exam – NEET (national eligibility entrance test), as it follows the curriculum prescribed by CBSE. The amendments have been uploaded on the CBSE official website.
