CBSE to Conduct Board Exams For 29 Subjects

CBSE directs its affiliated schools to promote all students of classes I-VIII to the next class/grade.

Published

on

Union Human Resource Development Minister Shri Ramesh Pokhriyal 'Nishank' has advised CBSE to promote ALL students studying in classes I-VIII to the next class/grade in view of the current situation due to COVID-19. He also advised the board students studying in classes IX & XI will be promoted to next class/grade based on the school-based assessments including projects, periodic tests, term exams, etc. conducted so far. The Minister also recommended to conduct board examinations only for 29 main subjects that are required for promotion and may be crucial for admissions in HEIs, and for rest of the subjects, the Board will not hold examinations; the instructions for marking/assessment in all such cases shall be separately issued by the Board.

As a precautionary measure and in compliance of the instructions received from Ministry of HRD, Government of India, dated 18th March 2020, CBSE had postponed all the board examinations that were to be held between 19.03.2020 to 31.03.2020. It was informed in the Board’s press release dated 18.3.20 that “date sheets for the rescheduled board examinations shall be communicated by the board through its website and press release after re-assessment of the situation.”  

The Board is committed to the academic welfare of its students; therefore, the Board is constantly assessing the situation and is keen to mitigate the anxiety of the students, parents, and schools. As per the suggestion of HRD Ministry in view of the prevailing extraordinary circumstances of the worldwide spread of COVID-19 and the countrywide lockdown, and in view of the queries raised by our stakeholders regarding the academic future of students, the Board advises/informs all schools affiliated to the Board as follows as a one-time measure:

1. For classes 1 to 8: All students studying in classes 1 to 8 may be promoted to the next class/grade. This advisory is being issued in consultation with NCERT.

2. For classes 9 and 11: It has come to our notice that though several schools affiliated to CBSE have completed their examination, evaluation and promotion process for students who were studying in grades 9 and 11 in the 2019-20 academic session, there are several schools that have not been able to do so. This includes among others, Kendriya Vidyalayas, Navodaya Vidyalayas, State/UT government schools, private schools, schools located in India and abroad, etc. All such schools are advised to promote students of grades 9 and 11 to the next grades on the basis of all the school-based assessments including project work, periodic tests, term exams, etc. conducted so far. For any child who is unable to clear this internal process, (in any number of subjects), the school may utilise this period for providing remedial interventions, and school may give the opportunity of appearing in school-based test/s, online or offline. The promotion of such children may be decided on the basis of such tests.

3. Schedule for class 10 and 12 board exams: With regard to rescheduling board examinations for classes 10 and 12, it is informed that at this stage it is difficult for the Board to decide and announce the new schedule for examinations. However, it is informed that any decision that the board will take with regard to the conduct of examinations will be taken by undertaking extensive consultation with higher education authorities and by keeping all aspects related to entrance exams, admissions dates, etc. in mind. In this context, it is further informed that the Board will give notice of about 10 days to all stakeholders before starting the Board examinations.

4. Subjects for Board exams: It is informed that the Board was not able to conduct exams on 8 examination days due to the COVID-19 pandemic situation. Further, due to the law and order situation in North East Delhi District, the board was not able to conduct exams on 4 examination days, while a very small number of students from and around this District were not able to appear in exams on 6 examination days.

Considering the extraordinary circumstances, the Board has been forced to review its policy in this regard. Under ordinary circumstances, the Board would not have hesitated to conduct all examinations that could not be held after 18th March 2020 or are postponed for other reasons. But in the present situation, the Board has decided as follows:

  • The Board will conduct examinations for only main subjects that will be required for promotion and may be crucial for admissions in higher educational institutions.
  • For the rest of the subjects, the Board will not hold examinations; the instructions for marking/assessment in all such cases shall be separately issued by the Board.
  • Therefore, as and when the Board is in a position to hold examinations, it shall hold examinations only for the following 29 subjects:

Subjects of class 10 for which exams will be held

Subjects of class 12 for which exams will be held

5. CBSE schools in foreign countries: There are several CBSE schools located in 25 countries. Each of these countries is also under lockdown and/or have decided to close down the schools for various and differential lengths of time. Under such circumstances, it is felt that the Board will not be in a position to hold a differential set of exams for each of these countries. Also, in the present situation, it will be difficult to bring the answer books to India for evaluation purposes. Therefore, the Board has decided to not hold any more exams for the students of class 10 and 12 schools located outside India. The system of marking/assessment for the purpose of declaring results will be worked out by the Board shortly and informed to these schools.

6. Evaluation work: Due to the present situation, the Board has not been able to continue its evaluation work. The Board will come out with further instructions for evaluating in the changed circumstances. These instructions and dates for a restart of evaluation work in various evaluation centres in the country can also not be announced at this stage. However, the Board will give 3-4 days’ notice to restart the evaluation work, which may be noted by all the Chief Nodal Supervisors, Head Examiners, Evaluators, Coordinators, etc. of Evaluation Centers.

7. Avoid rumours: To avoid being misled by rumours, all stakeholders are hereby being informed to only trust the official announcements by the Board that are made on the Board’s website. All are requested to check for latest developments only on the Board’s website, that is www.cbse.nic.in or its social media as follows:

8. Schools to inform all students: All schools are requested to ensure that this information is disseminated to all concerned students by the respective schools.

Published

on

The Ministry of Education has announced the launch of a significant initiative titled “Mera Pehla Vote Desh Ke Liye”, scheduled to run from 28th February to 6th March 2024. This national campaign is designed to foster universal, informed participation among the youth in elections, aiming to increase participation of youth in 2024 Lok Sabha elections.

Union Education and Skill Development & Entrepreneurship Minister, Shri Dharmendra Pradhan, has called upon the youth of India to actively partake in the democratic process. Echoing Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi’s encouragement for first-time voters to vote in large numbers, Shri Pradhan emphasised the importance of making informed choices for the advancement of democracy. To this end, he has directed Higher Educational Institutions (HEIs) across India to host extensive voter awareness activities on their campuses, aiming to underscore the significance of each vote in shaping the nation’s future.

The initiative seeks to engage young voters through a variety of activities, underscoring the importance of voting for the nation’s greater good. HEIs will feature designated areas for voter awareness activities, including a blend of on-ground and online events on the MyGov platform. The week-long campaign will host diverse events such as blog writing, podcasting, debates, essay writing, quizzes, and more, encouraging creative expression among students. Furthermore, workshops and seminars will be organised to deepen understanding of the electoral process, alongside encouragement for youths to take a voter’s pledge online and utilise the Voter Helpline App.

The National Service Scheme (NSS) and its volunteers are set to play a pivotal role in driving the initiative within educational institutions, with all activities to be documented on the ‘My Gov’ portal for broader reach. Clubs within educational settings will also join in to support the campaign’s objectives.

This initiative marks a significant effort by the Ministry of Education to ensure that India’s youth are not only aware of their electoral rights but are also motivated to participate actively in the democratic processes that define the world’s largest democracy. Through “Mera Pehla Vote Desh Ke Liye”, the ministry aims to instil a sense of pride and responsibility in young voters, empowering them to contribute to the nation’s democratic fabric.

India Sets 6-Year Minimum Age for Class 1 Admissions Nationwide

Published

on

The image is generated using AI

The Ministry of Education has officially established a minimum age requirement of 6 years for admissions into Class 1, aligning with the National Education Policy (NEP) 2020’s emphasis on developmental readiness and ensuring a uniform standard across the nation. This landmark decision underscores the government’s commitment to the foundational principles laid out in the NEP 2020, prioritising early childhood care and education and recognising the distinct developmental needs of children aged 3–6 years.

In official communications disseminated through the Ministry’s X (formerly Twitter) account, the Ministry of Education (MoE) highlighted its directives to all states and Union Territories (UTs) to conform to this guideline starting from the academic session 2024-25. The move is aimed at ensuring that children are adequately mature, both emotionally and cognitively, to navigate the demands of primary education.

The Ministry’s letters to the states and UTs, issued on 15 February 2024, reiterate requests made in previous correspondences (D.O. letter No. 9-2/20- IS-3 dated 31 March 2021 and 9 February 2023), urging alignment with the NEP 2020 and the Right of Children to Free and Compulsory Education (RTE) Act, 2009. These communications highlight the importance of a standardised age of entry into Grade 1 as a critical step towards realising the vision of an education system that fosters equitable and inclusive learning opportunities for every child in India.

By mandating a minimum entry age for Class 1, the Ministry aims not only to ensure that children possess the necessary readiness for the academic and social aspects of schooling but also to promote consistency and coherence in the implementation of educational reforms across the country. This initiative reflects a holistic approach to education, acknowledging the critical role of developmental readiness in the overall learning journey of a child.

The Ministry of Education’s directive serves as a reminder of the transformative potential of the NEP 2020, aiming to adapt India’s education system to the evolving needs of its children and laying the groundwork for a future where every child can thrive and reach their full potential. With the academic session 2024-25 on the horizon, this policy sets a new standard for educational excellence and equity, marking a significant milestone in India’s journey towards an inclusive and empowering education system for all.

The move has been met with widespread approval, highlighting the government’s dedication to not just educational reform but to nurturing well-rounded individuals equipped for the challenges and opportunities of the 21st century. As states and UTs work towards implementing this directive, the education landscape in India stands at the cusp of a new era, one where the focus on holistic development promises to redefine the foundations of learning and teaching for generations to come.

Education or Profit? Bombay High Court Calls for Accessible Learning for All

Published

on

The image is generated using AI

In a recent statement that hits home for many, the Bombay High Court pointed out a harsh truth: education, once considered sacred in our culture, has now become something many can hardly afford. The court stressed that it’s the government’s duty to make sure everyone in the country has access to good quality education, highlighting the importance of education in the growth and development of society.

Judges AS Chandurkar and Jitendra Jain shared their thoughts during a case involving a request to open a new college. They mentioned a concern that only letting groups with previous experience in education open new colleges could unfairly keep new players out of the game. This could lead to a few big names controlling the education sector, which isn’t fair to everyone else. Yet, they also acknowledged that experience is important to make sure these new institutions can actually provide good education. While acknowledging the importance of experience in managing educational institutions, the justices called for a more balanced approach. They suggested the establishment of clear, quantifiable parameters for evaluating applications for new colleges, thereby ensuring a fair and competitive educational landscape.

This judicial intervention is a stark reminder of the ongoing transformation of the education sector into an ‘education industry,’ where the pursuit of profit often overshadows the noble mission of disseminating knowledge.

With tuition fees skyrocketing and private coaching centers popping up everywhere, education is becoming more about money and less about learning and growth. It’s a wake-up call for those running educational institutions to remember the real reason they’re in this field – not to make a profit, but to educate and shape future generations.

This scenario demands a reevaluation of our priorities. Education should not be a luxury only a few can afford. It’s a fundamental right that paves the way for a better future for individuals and society as a whole. It’s time for educational institutions to reflect on their purpose and for the government to take action to ensure that quality education is accessible to everyone, regardless of their financial status. This entails not only regulating fees and ensuring transparency in the functioning of educational institutions but also investing in public education to enhance its quality and reach.

“Although ‘education’ is a pious in our culture but with change in time it has taken a different colour and has become unaffordable. It is the State’s Constitutional responsibility to ensure quality education reaches all the citizens of this country to achieve the growth and development of humanity”, the court said. 

The Bombay High Court’s remarks are a crucial reminder for us all. It’s a call to action to prevent the commercialization of education from overshadowing its true value and to work towards a system where education is seen not as an industry, but as a vital service that nurtures humanity’s growth and development.

CBSE considering Open Book Exams for classes 9-12, to do a pilot run in November

Published

on

The image is generated using AI

In an innovative step towards modernising education, the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) is exploring the introduction of Open Book Examinations (OBE) for students in Classes 9 to 12. This initiative aligns with the latest recommendations from the new National Curriculum Framework, according to reports from The Indian Express.

The CBSE plans to conduct a pilot run of this progressive examination format in select schools later this year. The subjects chosen for this pilot include English, Mathematics, and Science for Classes 9 and 10, and English, Mathematics, and Biology for Classes 11 and 12. This preliminary phase aims to gauge the duration students require to complete the tests and gather feedback from all stakeholders involved.

Open Book Examinations allow students to refer to their notes, textbooks, and other study materials during the exam. Contrary to perceptions that this makes exams easier, OBEs often present a more significant challenge. They are designed to assess students’ comprehension of the material, analytical abilities, and their capacity to apply concepts in various contexts, rather than mere rote memorisation.

Scheduled for November-December this year, the pilot’s outcomes will be instrumental in determining whether CBSE will implement this assessment method across all affiliated schools for the specified classes. The focus of these exams will be on evaluating students’ higher-order thinking skills, including analysis, critical and creative thinking, and problem-solving capabilities.

In preparation for the pilot, CBSE is set to finalise the design and development of the OBE model by June. The board seeks to collaborate with Delhi University (DU), which had previously adopted open book tests in August 2020 amidst the Covid-19 pandemic, despite facing opposition. This move disrupted the traditional academic calendar and paved the way for alternative assessment methods.

During discussions in the curriculum committee meeting, it was suggested that teachers should initially undertake open book exams themselves. This approach will help them grasp the concept more thoroughly and aid in the creation of quality OBE materials, potentially mirroring the standard of the Advanced Placement exams used for college entrance in the United States.

This step by CBSE, as reported by The Indian Express, marks a significant shift towards enhancing educational assessments and is poised to transform the way students learn and are evaluated, promoting a deeper understanding and application of knowledge.

Kerala Introduces ‘Water-Bell’ Initiative in Schools to Boost Hydration

Published

on

In a pioneering move to promote adequate hydration among students, Kerala schools have commenced the ‘water-bell’ system from Monday. This innovative initiative, inaugurated by the State General Education Minister V Sivankutty, is set to ring in a new era of health consciousness in the state’s education system.

Under this system, a bell will specifically ring twice during the school day – at 10:30 am and again at 2:30 pm – across all educational institutions in Kerala to remind students to drink water. This measure comes as a response to the increasing temperatures in the region, which heighten the risk of dehydration.

Minister Sivankutty highlighted the significance of regular water intake, noting that it’s essential even when students do not feel thirsty. He pointed out the risks associated with heat, including dehydration, which can cause discomfort and affect students’ well-being and academic performance. Furthermore, he underlined the importance of providing accessible clean drinking water for all students, particularly for those who may not bring water from home.

The General Education Department has proudly noted that Kerala was the first state in India to introduce this system back in 2019, in areas that were notably affected by high temperatures. The initiative proved to be influential, with other states like Karnataka and Telangana following suit with similar programmes.

Each hydration interval, lasting five minutes, is a strategic pause in the school day, designed to ensure students maintain good hydration habits. This is part of a broader effort to combat the negative health effects associated with India’s soaring summer temperatures.

A Voice for All Ages: The Enduring Legacy of Ameen Sayani in Indian Education

Published

on

In the echoing halls of Indian broadcasting, the voice of Mr. Ameen Sayani resonated with a warmth that touched millions, uniting a diverse nation in the golden era of radio. Today, at the age of 91, as we bid farewell to this stalwart of the airwaves, his absence leaves a silence that is palpable and profound. Mr. Sayani was not merely a radio presenter; he was a cultural icon who personified the soul of India, a voice that became the soundtrack of our collective memory.

The voice of Mr. Ameen Sayani has been a familiar comfort in the homes of countless Indians, a testament to his incredible journey in broadcasting. He is best known for his work on “Binaca Geetmala”, a radio program that became a weekly ritual for listeners, showcasing the latest and greatest in Hindi film music. His distinctive voice and charming style turned the show into an institution, one that charted the musical landscape of India for years. His journey in the world of radio began at a young age, and his natural ease behind the microphone made him a household name. Through his programs, he didn’t just play songs; he wove tales around them, connecting with his audience on a personal level, making each listener feel as though they were a part of a larger Indian family.

Why should Mr. Sayani’s legacy be a part of our schools and colleges? It’s simple: he was a master storyteller and communicator, whose skills go beyond radio. He showed us the power of reaching out and touching hearts, of crafting stories that linger in the memory. These are the kinds of lessons that are vital for every student, no matter what they want to do in life.

Mr. Sayani’s voice brought people together, crossing barriers of region and language. His approach to communication is something we should all try to learn from – it’s about engaging with others, being culturally aware, and building a sense of community with our words.

His radio shows did more than entertain. They taught listeners how to listen to each other, to share in the joys and sorrows of others, reflecting the society of the time. As educators, we should aim to teach our students not just to be good at a job, but to be good people – and Mr. Sayani’s life and work offer rich lessons in this respect.

Advertisement

To include Mr. Sayani in our curriculum is to honor a man whose passion became the heartbeat of a nation. We should use his story to inspire students to find their own voices, to tell stories that matter, and to understand the incredible impact they can have on the world.

As we remember him, let’s bring the spirit of his work into our classrooms, so that the power of his voice continues to inspire future generations to make their own lasting impact.

From 2025-26, Indian Students to Get Two Opportunities to Sit for Board Exams

Published

on

The image is generated using AI

In a significant overhaul aimed at alleviating academic pressure, Union Education Minister Dharmendra Pradhan announced that students will soon have the opportunity to sit for their 10th and 12th board examinations twice within the same academic year. This groundbreaking initiative is set to commence in the 2025-26 session, aligning with the broader objectives of the new National Education Policy (NEP).

The announcement was made in Chhattisgarh during the inauguration of the PM SHRI (Prime Minister Schools for Rising India) scheme, which promises the modernisation of 211 state schools. Speaking at the Pandit Deendayal Upadhyay Auditorium in Raipur, Pradhan highlighted the NEP’s focus on reducing student stress and fostering a holistic educational environment.

Central to the NEP’s vision, introduced by the government in 2020, is the introduction of “10 bag-less days” annually, encouraging students to engage in arts, culture, sports, and other extracurricular activities. Furthermore, Pradhan detailed the Centre’s plan under the NEP 2020 to offer dual exam opportunities for board students starting from the academic year 2025-26. This approach, following the New Curriculum Framework (NCF) unveiled last August, aims to provide ample preparation time and enhance student performance.

Under this new system, students can choose their best score from the two exam sittings, a strategy aimed at maximising their academic outcomes. The minister queried the attending students on their views regarding this revision, urging them to seize the advantage of selecting their optimal results.

Pradhan reinforced that this innovation in examination policy reflects Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s vision encapsulated in the NEP: to cultivate a stress-free learning environment enriched with quality education. This initiative also seeks to keep students connected with their cultural roots while equipping them for future challenges, all contributing towards India’s goal of becoming a developed nation by 2047.

Lexicon Schools Spark Innovation with STEAM Fest

Published

on

The Lexicon Schools recently hosted STEAM Fest, a vibrant celebration of creativity, innovation, and interdisciplinary learning. The event showcased numerous projects and activities, embodying the school’s commitment to providing a holistic education integrating Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics (STEAM).

STEAM education nurtures critical thinking and problem-solving skills essential for the 21st-century workforce. It promotes transparent evaluation and cultivates self-discovery, empowering children to create tangible solutions and become lifelong learners.

Reflecting on the success of the fest, Mr. Pankaj Sharma, President, The Lexicon Group of Institutes, Chairman & MD, Pune Times Mirror, Civic Mirror, and MultiFit, remarked, “STEAM education is essential for preparing students for the challenges of the future. With focus on not only the ‘how’ and ‘what’, but also the ‘who’ and ‘why’, the STEAM Fest is specifically designed to develop future innovators. At The Lexicon Schools, integrating STEAM into the curriculum fosters well-rounded individuals equipped to tackle the dynamic, multifaceted challenges of the modern world, ensuring their education remains relevant and future-proof.”

Participants engaged in different projects, exemplifying the fusion of art, science, technology, and engineering. The young minds delved into math-related activities and presented projects focused on cleanliness and hygiene. Primary students delved into robotics, and environmental sustainability at the fest. Their projects on mechanical water pumps and balloon cars displayed their grasp of engineering principles, while the exploration of the water cycle and projects on thermal conductivity delved into scientific concepts. Moreover, an anatomical display of the human body provided valuable insights into biology, and the air quality monitoring project raised awareness about the pressing issue of air pollution.

Senior students engaged with advanced concepts, such as IoT and road safety. They also created kaleidoscopic displays, developed rainwater detection systems, and presented anatomical models.

STEAM education, with its integrated and holistic approach, aids students in perceiving challenging subjects from different perspectives. Through hands-on projects, students explored creative processes and utilized various methods of inquiry and investigation, cultivating a diverse set of hard and soft skills.

Mr. Nasir Shaikh, Group Chief Executive Officer, The Lexicon Group of Institutes, EduCrack, & EasyRecruit+, added, “STEAM taps into children’s natural curiosity. If you’ve ever tried to find answers to a long series of questions asked by a child, you know how inquisitive they are about the world around them. STEAM lessons focus on deep questioning and finding novel solutions rather than memorizing standard facts and figures that can easily be ‘Googled’.”

Education is not just about academic achievement; it’s about cultivating a mindset of inquisitiveness, innovation, and collaboration. The Lexicon Schools exemplified this by providing a platform for students to showcase their talents, exchange ideas, and inspire one another. By integrating STEAM-based learning, The Lexicon Schools are shaping the leaders, innovators, and problem-solvers of tomorrow.
