CBSE has commenced the procedure of helping its students get admission in Class XI of the state board. 7 guidance centers have been set up in Mumbai, Nagpur & Pune of Maharashtra state, which will direct CBSE Class X students who aspire to move to state board in Class XI. The guidance centre of Nagpur is situated at Neeri Modern School & those looking for help can ring at 0712 2246679 for detailed information.
It has been 3 years now & the argument between CBSE & Maharashtra state board still persists. The state board has declined to distinguish the central board's school based examination in class X, consequently excluding students who appeared for it from seeking admission to junior colleges. In year 2011, when the altercation started, over 2000 students were stuck across the state in a no man’s land.
The state board lastly gave consent to acknowledge these CBSE students with a stipulation that they can apply only for those seats that rest unfilled even after all Common Admission Procedure rounds have been complete. Since year 2012, barely around 2 per cent students in Nagpur have been going for the school based examination, that too mainly in Kendriya Vidyalayas.
In the recent system, CBSE students who gave the school based examinations are not entitled to seats in the junior colleges. Highly placed sources stated that they might be given admittance to vacant seats, just like in year 2011, if the deputy directorate wishes to follow the subject.
For those who took the board based examination admission is likely through Common Admission Procedure but they’ll have to get a declaration of marks from their school. CBSE has already provided a report of marks to all the schools which they have to enter & endorse on the student's admission form.
This is being done for the reason that CBSE no more declares marks but declare grades in its place. CBSE tried its best to persuade the state board that both its examinations are at par, but it didn’t assent the desired result. Even schools these days daunt students to opt for the school based examination as it is almost like a blind alley.
