Govt approves grading system in CBSE schools

New Delhi The Government on Monday announced that it will introduce grading system in all Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) schools and make Class X board exams optional from coming academic year (2010-11).

Union Human Resource Development minister Kapil Sibal, during a press conference in the national capital, said: “Central Advisory Board of Education (CABE) supports making Class X examination optional in CBSE system.”

“There is a pan-India consensus over the issue. So we have decided to go ahead with this,” Sibal said.

The Class X board exams will become optional in all CBSE schools from the coming academic year (2010-11).

As per sources, the CBSE has prepared the format of an aptitude exam which schools can use to test Class X students on their level of understanding in each subject. The emphasis, however, will be on continuous and comprehensive evaluation (CCE) through the year instead of a single public exam at the end of Class X.
