Schools in Delhi expressed that limited number of seats for various streams after class X are preventing them from complying with the recent circular given by the CBSE board on admission norms for class XI.

The board has taken an initiative to keep a hold on increasing incidences of schools exploiting class XI students who switch their streams or subjects and has given new guidelines to secure the future of the students.

As per the recent directives issued by the CBSE, schools cannot charge any additional fee from students changing their streams. Moreover, if a student is switching to a different stream, then schools will have to bear the expenses incurred on new books. They will also have to assist students in coping up with special coaching classes without any extra charges.

However, schools have expressed their inability in implementing this.

As per the schools, there are a limited number of seats in each stream and students are provided admission based on their grade point average. High Court’s order strictly prohibits students from changing streams after board Results but limited number of seats is posing problems for schools to implement the directives.
