No decision on advancing Board exams without consulting stakeholders, says CBSE

By: Admin 27 June, 2017

Leaving behind the fiasco created in board results this year, Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) is deliberating on conducting the board exams a bit earlier from next year and a board official confirmed to Press Trust of India that no decision on advancing class 10 and 12 CBSE board exams will be taken without consultations with various stakeholders including schools.

 

Highlights
  • The CBSE is considering to conduct Board exams for Classes 10th and 12th a bit earlier from next year.
  • But no decision on CBSE board exams will be taken without consultations with various stakeholders including schools.
  • If the proposal is approved and materialized, students would be appearing for the board exams in February instead of March every year.
  • Considering the fiasco around evaluation of answer sheets this year, the Board feels this decision will result in better quality of checking.
  • "The purpose is to have more time for evaluation and bring quality. The board will involve all stakeholders in the process," the source told NDTV.

 

If the proposal is approved and materialized, students would be appearing for the board exams in February instead of March every year. The proposal is still in nascent stages and has been put forward so as to accommodate the undergraduate admissions which either begin before or immediately after CBSE announces the board exam result.

 

A source from CBSE said, "A proposal has been generated to deliberate upon the possibility of conducting board exams from mid-February taking into consideration various processes and preparations in the administration of exams".

 

"The purpose is to have more time for evaluation and bring quality. The board will involve all stakeholders in the process," the source told NDTV then. CBSE conducts exams on March and declare results on May and June. This was delayed because of the Assembly elections held in five states. The board released the class 12 results on May 28 and class 10 results on June 3.

 

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 told PTI.
