Mothballing CBSE Board Exams: Foul play Under the Veil

first_imgThere was no surprise for me that CBSE called off the Board Examinations amid Pandemic.  I knew how unprofessional they are.  CBSE is a ghost organization whose entity is never felt as far as quality education is concerned.  The private schools hardly maintain the norms in their infrastructure.  The whimsical changes in syllabus, in the name of vibrancy, CBSE always followed the appealing role of the colour of the Central Government.  And now, after much drama and press rerelease, CBSE came back to square. This is a serious gamble and breach of responsibility.  Approximately eighteen thousand CBSE affiliated schools are there and in which the students have already paid the examination fees. Approximately ten lakh students appear in Secondary and eight lakh students appear in the Senior Secondary Examination every year. Now I am showing the data collected by CBSE the total fees towards examination and people will be the best judge: The new fees have been increasing for SC/ST from 375 to 1200, for General 375 to 1500, for foreign students 5000 to 10000.  Now CBSE says the evaluation will be on the basis of internal assessment.  But since march/April 2020 the schools remained shut, then how and when the evaluation took place? or when new evaluation will take place? If evaluation is conducted by the schools, then why CBSE should get examination fees? There should be a crystal clear evaluation process and rubrics should be applied.  I am definite other boards will follow CBSE and drop their planning of examination. The respite in the long run will be compensated by the students.  Government should devise some innovative method to take the examination and complete generation should not be dumped into abysmal uncertainty.last_img read more
