The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has released an official announcement for the affiliated schools to make 75% attendance compulsory for students of class 10 and 12. The CBSE has also confirmed that it is compulsory for the students to keep their attendance of 75% till January 01, 2019. The Board gave emphasis to the fact that whosoever fails to meet the 75% attendance criteria, will not be allowed to attend the examination. As per the information, this is the first time that CBSE has taken such severe decision against the students of class 10 and 12.
This news came as a big surprise for the students who are preparing for their board examinations. This rule has been passed keeping in mind the Delhi High Court’s decision. According to the reports, from January 01, 2019 the internal assessment of the students from both the classes will start. After January 15, 2019, no letter regarding attendance will be accepted. If any student from class 10 or 12 fails to maintain their proper attendance, then he or she will not be allowed to attend the examination.
From 2019, numerous changes are planned for the class 10th and 12th board examinations. Apart from this, the Central Board of Secondary Education is going to conduct the exams of class 10 and 12 for the vocational subjects first in the month of February followed by the core subjects in the month of March.
