The Central Board of Secondary Education has decided to implement a new strategy where students can no longer change their courses mid-stream. All the CBSE affiliated schools have been asked to not allow subject or stream change for students in Class 10 and Class 12 for the academic year 2015-2016.
Distraught parents only came to know about it once their continuous pleas for subject change were rejected by the school authorities. An official circular has been sent from schools to its students regarding the subject change on May 15.
The students’ inability to change their subject mid-stream has left them in a lurch, prompting them to take the decision of changing their board.
A total of 13,73,853 students will be awaiting their Class 10 CBSE board examination result anxiously. Results were first expected to be announced around May 19 but have been delayed and are now expected on May 28.
The results are going to be one of the most crucial aspects in deciding what subject and stream students should pick for themselves in Class 11. The allotment of streams depends majorly on the Cumulative Grade Points Average (CGPA), which makes the Class 10 Board result the real foundation for any student.
The Central Board of Secondary Education has also started with post-examination counselling for students. An esteemed panel of psychologists will guide the students in the right direction which will leave minimum scope for students to change subjects mid-stream
