Bhubaneswar : In what could be a big breakthrough, media sources on Friday quoted a senior HRD Ministry official saying that CBSE Class X board examinations are likely to be introduced due to apprehensions over apparent downgrading of academic standards of students enrolled in the certificate course.
As per information, academicians are unhappy on the aftermath of scrapping the exams while some other conditions like no-detention policy, pressure factor on students directly appearing Class XII board exams being some that could be attributed to be reasons behind the disapproval.
In a bid to reduce pressure from students the CBSE brought down curtain on the class X exams and constituted a Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation (CCE) to provide grading based marking system throughout the schooling till Class XII but not a vociferous and final exam that could really act like a big milestone, so for students Class X which used to be a big turning point in one’s career now somewhat has lost its relative importance and has turned out to be more of same like any other secondary classes leading to fall in standards.
Similarly, no detention policy which applies till class X at present will change dramatically if the policy which is also under the amendment scanner is taken into account. If such a thing happen then the re-tests might get applicable only till class VIII while from Class IX onwards students could get detained for that, sources said.
The policy might get a makeover possibly by 2018, it also said.
