    but the problem is that our school and teachers are not following it properly,
    instead of giving so many activities, they are giving us a lot of test, which is becoming a big burden on students
    and when they are told that inspection is going to be held in a particular month, that month they will give so many activities together which we student find it so difficult……….
    So, its my request to cbse to take care of these things and conduct the inspection without informing the schools.
