CBSE (Central Board of Secondary Education) has issued new guidelines for admissions to class XI as per which several schools will have to hold entrance tests to shortlist students from other schools.
CBSE’s new norms have come as a result of the decision of the board to make class 10 board exams optional.
As per the new norms, schools must first conduct admission process for their students respectively and then outsiders can be considered.
This guideline has forced a number of schools to schedule tests to shortlist candidates from other institutes to the remaining seats.
Till 2011, students were allocated seats in CBSE senior secondary schools on the basis of test conducted after class X or pre-board Results.
Many schools have lined up entrance tests in the second week of May though the CBSE exam Results are expected still later.
Entrance exam will include subjects such as Mathematics, English and Science for science stream students and Mathematics, English and Social Science for Humanities and Commerce stream.
Sources from Kerala CBSE School Management Association revealed that screening tests have been set as an eligibility standard to ascertain that outsiders meet the standards.
