Class IX & Class XI: CBSE lets schools register up to 45 students per section


Schools facing difficulty while registering students in classes IX and XI for the 2018-2019 session are being asked to contact the regional offices of the Central Board of Secondary Education( CBSE). As a temporary relief for this year, CBSE, allowed the schools to register up to 45 students per section instead of 40 as per the rules.

However, private schools will have to pay the penalty to be levied against the school for violation of the stipulated student to section ratio. Schools having students in excess of data entered by the school in the Online Affiliated School Information System (OASIS) are facing difficulty.

According to a CBSE official, "The Board has asked the schools to request the regional offices. But they have to give justification about the excess students for seeking permission for their registration. The online system will be opened for them and they can update (edit) the data in OASIS, but that must be supported by evidence..."

While the last date for registration without late fee is October 22 the schools can register till November 28 with a late fee. "If the schools have the infrastructure and space, they can add new sections and submit the details seeking permission for the additional section," said the official.
