CBSE Board Exam: Schools Affiliated To CBSE Board Can't Withhold Admit Cards

As per the notice released by the board, the schools affiliated to CBSE Board can't withhold the Admit cards of board bound students on any pretext.

The notification also states that the schools can't withhold the Admit cards those students who ill performed in the board exams.

The warning comes following several complaints received by the CBSE about withholding admit cards by certain schools and in some cases charging a fee for their release.

“Several instances of not issuing admit cards by various CBSE-affiliated schools on grounds of the performance of students in pre-board tests have come to the notice of the board. It has also been noted that some schools are charging fees for release of the admit card,” CBSE controller of examination KK Chaudhary said in an advisory.

Mentioning the Rule 15 of Examination Bye-Laws, the CBSE said, “In no case, the heads of affiliated schools shall detain eligible candidates from appearing at the examination. The practice has been viewed very seriously by the board and is violative of the bye-laws.”

The advisory also stated that the board issues admit cards to only those students which have been sponsored by the schools in their final list of candidates submitted to it.

“Therefore, their eligibility for the exams has already been confirmed by the school and hence their admit cards cannot be withheld. The schools also cannot charge any fee for issuing admit cards,” it said.

The CBSE board exams for Class 10 and 12 students are set to begin from March 5.
