Cambridge International Examinations (CIE) have announced an extra exam session in march for Indian students admission schedules considering students’ interest. However, the state boards are still unaware of the problems that are faced by their own students.


Educationists found a series of factual and grammatical errors in the textbooks printed as per new syllabus which is an example of state board's lack of concern towards its students.


The Central Board of Secondary Education introduced grade system instead of marks for Class X and XII students in order to cut down competition. Whereas, Maharashtra Board made marks compulsory as students have to reveal their marks for getting admission to degree college or junior college courses.


Similarly, The Council for the Indian School Certificate Examinations left the environmental studies subject from 2012 syllabus. But the students of Maharashtra faced problem specially for those applying for the best-five admission policy.


Cambridge International Examinations (CIE) recently declared new exam session in the month of March for Indian students to accommodate the admission timetable followed by schools and colleges/universities in the country.
