The Central Board of Secondary Education has decided to restore Board examination for class X and revised assessment structure and examination for classes I- X from academic year 2017-18 onwards. This new scheme aims at bringing uniformity in the system of assessment and examination in all the CBSE affiliated schools. To increase the confidence in the students to prepare for class X Board examination the CBSE has decided to implement the uniform system of assessment, examination pattern and issue of report cards for lower classes also on the similar pattern. In lower classes the Assessment and Examination pattern has been designed on Term Assessment basis with gradual increase in the learning assessment as the students move forward. This would prepare the students to cover the whole syllabus of the academic year and face the challenge of class X Board examination, and would thus, ensure the ‘quality of education’. The assessment structure and examination pattern for class IX will be similar to that class X.
The scheme also ensures the easy migration of students within the family of CBSE affiliated schools and ease their difficulties while seeking admissions in new schools. The detail components of the scheme are mentioned below for easy understanding and implementation.
Classes I- III
Students of classes I to III shall have no formal examinations.
Classes IV- VIII
Classes IX & X
