When Mr.Joshi was asked about the Grade System introduced by CBSE, he said “The students and their parents well welcomed it. In fact we have not heard any student committing suicide in the pretext of examination stress. With this we are certain that grade system has become a great success”. He also added “In future, CBSE would conduct All India Engineering Entrance Examination (AIEEE) online as in the current context it would not be possible as many of the students were not comfortable with computers.
Initially, Mr. Joshi read out the speech copy of Union HRD Minister Mr. Kapil Sibal who was to inaugurate the conference but did not attend the meeting. Mr.Sibal had said that with the conference teachers would discover their optimum potential to channelize student's energy.
