CBSE is likely to reintroduce board exam in class 10 from session 2017-18. It means those who are studying in class 9 this year, will have to sit in board examination next year. The comeback of board exam was being expected from the very first day when Mr. Prakash Javadekar took charge as HRD minister. Few weeks back, CABE (Central Advisory Board on Education) meeting was held and most of the stake holders supported the move. However, it was not in agenda of CABE meeting but a general consensus was built around it.
Mr. Javadekar, has confirmed the comeback of board examination today in an informal conversation with reporters after a meeting with the Rajasthan Education Minister. “We will implement it from the 2017-2018 session. Not this year or in the next two months. The final decisions will be announced soon, it is under final consideration,” Mr Javadekar said.
CBSE made the board examination optional in the year 2010 and it was made almost mandatory to sit in school based home examination in KVs and govt. schools. Board exam was being conducted only for those who were willing to go out of CBSE system. However, in both of the cases, CBSE was awarding same certification to board and home exams.
The worst part of this system is that CBSE was conducting board exam for 30 marks only and rest of the 70 marks were being awarded by schools. Many state boards were not ready to accept marks awarded by schools while taking admission in class 11. Thus the whole process was too much confusing and was inviting interrogative remarks.
