Tamil Nadu gets 80 new CBSE affiliated schools

Around 80 new Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) affiliated schools have come up in Tamil Nadu in the past 1 year, adding to the growth of CBSE which is effective nationally since 1952. The total number of CBSE affiliated schools are now at a grand figure of 14,841.

A lot of parents are sending their children to CBSE affiliated schools, making a switch from the state education boards. Studying under state board of education certainly offers a number of benefits like it is easier to score marks, relevancy in subjects and preferred admissions under state institutes. But, CBSE has its own set of benefits for students. A dual pattern which has few of the school branches affiliated to their state board and a few school branches affiliated to CBSE, is being followed by many schools in Tamil Nadu.

The core aim of establishment of CBSE was to provide uninterrupted studies for children of parents who work in a transferable job. CBSE syllabi will aid children if they take up competitive examinations, is what the parents feel about sending their children to a school affiliated to CBSE syllabus. The new revolutions which are implemented in CBSE, specifically those schemes which are inspired to reduce stress on students, are captivating to both parents and children. Continuous and comprehensive assessment system, the optional Class 10th external board exam, is the most attractive CBSE innovation which provides the formulae within exam paper and open text based assessment etc., are winning scheme which the children appreciate.

For the year 2013-2014, a total of 499 schools are affiliated with CBSE within Tamil Nadu, with 122 CBSE affiliated schools in Chennai alone.
