CCE stands for Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation. As the name suggests, this latest method of performance evaluation by CBSE, is meant to measure the students’ abilities at every single thing. CCE system has been made mandatory for the students of 6th to 10th as well as 12th. This means that the boards shall be measuring the students’ performance on grading system, instead of percentile. Another important aspect of the CCE system is active learning of the students throughout the year.
CBSE claims that the CCE system will play a major role in changing the education process from a typical “chalk and talk” to proper evaluation on all aspects. Also, another imperative point to note here is the cutting down of huge CBSE syllabus. Under the CCE method, a student need not study the huge CBSE syllabus because what is covered in the first term will not be repeated during the second or final term, whatsoever. So, in a way this is a way of reducing excessive pressure, but a lot of students and teachers believe that it is adding more stress. Whether CCE pattern of study is a boon or a bane, let us find out here.

Even though CCE is a radical concept in the reformation of education system in India, but the disadvantages need to be addressed in a right manner so as to bring about a real, genuine and positive transformation to the education patterns with reduced stress over students.
The students have to be treated like children and it is very important to understand that every child has its own capacity and capability. Undue pressure and unnecessary stress or constant evaluation is still predominant factor of India’s education and for bringing out the shy students out of their shell, there has to be a lot more improvement in all the studying patterns in the country.
