"We Want Board Exams" Says CBSE Schools-Bangalore

CBSE Schools Seeks Board Exams
Since, past two years when the CBSE board had made class 10 examinations optional in order to remove the phantom of 'Board Exams' stress in students has now resulted in a very few takers in Bangalore city.

 

Board Exams are continuing to be the most preferred choice over the Internal test among all stake holders, which includes affiliated schools. The sources revealed that maximum percentile of both students as well as parents are finding ease with the old system. Also, many schools in the city has already challenged the CBSE diktat and abandoned the internal exams collectively.

Students are now encouraged to go for Board exams, as they get more options in it. Here, a principal of Jain International school, Archana Vishvanath says "We recommend board examinations only. This gives children an option to take up any stream and appear for competitive exams too. A child might like to switch over to ICSE or IGCSE curriculum, apart from going for PU board."

"In that case, the school based examination will be of no use. Moreover, we have observed that students who take up board exams are more confident than their counterparts", she added.

Most of the schools have already done with their School Examinations. The director of the City School said "We have only board exam. We brought in this rule after evaluating the impact of school based test on a child's career in the future. Moreover, there have been instances of parents creating ruckus about the grades allotted to their wards in internal exams, as evaluation is done by our teachers".

A member of Board, Delhi Public School, Mansoor Ali Khan says that "There is no comparison between numbers of students opting for school-based examinations. In Delhi Public School North, 275 students opted for the board based test this year, while only 25 are going for the school-based one. It's the same trend in other centres too".

"While CBSE figures for 2011-12 show that only around 45% of students opted for board based exams, city schools beg to differ. Perhaps, the trend down south is different. I don't know how CBSE arrived at this conclusion, because we are witnessing just the reverse", added Mr. Mansoor Ali Khan.
