In March, more students will appear for Board Exams

From 1st of March 2014, Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) will conduct its 10 and 12's board examination. From Chennai, approximately 1.8 lakh students will appear in 10th board's examination, raising the strength by 10% as compared to last year. In 12th board the figures have risen by 20% to that of last year, as 80,000 students are expected to appear in 12th board this year.

The Chennai region covers CBSE affiliated schools from states and union territories- Tamil Nadu, Kerala, Andra Pradesh, Karnataka, Maharashtra, Goa, Puducherry, Andaman and Nicobar Islands and Daman and Diu.

More students will give the Board exams


The regional officer of CBSE, TS Sudharshan Rao informed about the increase of CBSE schools by sanctioning CBSE affiliation to 60 more in Tamil Nadu region. This was likely the cause of increased students sitting for CBSE board examination.

Because of quality education and high standard results, CBSE schools have become first choice of parents. People are very reluctant to send their kids to state board as they feel that their child will not get high and quality exposure which he will get in CBSE board school.

"Many parents are not satisfied with the level of curriculum in state schools and hence they feel CBSE syllabus is much more benefiting and improved," says V Christopher lawyer.

"A newly formed report compiled on the profit of students who managed to crack IIT's revealed that above 50% of such students had studied in CBSE affiliated schools and this could have attracted parents to enroll their children in CBSE affiliated schools," says RJ Bhuvanesh, CEO of KRM Group of schools.
