The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has released an official notification for the affiliated schools to make 75% attendance compulsory for class 10th and 12th students. The CBSE has also said that it is compulsory for the students to maintain their attendance of 75% till January 01, 2019. The Board emphasised on the fact that whosoever fails to meet the 75% attendance criteria, will not be allowed to sit for the examination. As per the reports, this is the first time that CBSE has taken such stern decision against the students of class 10 and 12.
This rule has been passed while keeping in mind the Delhi High Court’s decision. According to the reports, from January 01, 2019 the internal assessment of the students from both the classes will start. After January 15, 2019, no letter regarding attendance will be accepted. If any student from class 10th or 12th fails to maintain their proper attendance, then he or she will not be allowed to sit in the examination.
This news came as a big surprise for the students who are preparing for their board examinations. From 2019, numerous changes are planned for the class 10th and 12th board examinations.
Apart from this, the CBSE is going to conduct the exams of class 10th and 12th for the vocational subjects first in the month of February followed by the core subjects in the month of March.
