Board exams for Class X are now compulsory for all CBSE students from 2018 with CBSE approving the restoring of Class X board exams. The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) governing body on December 20, 2016, has unanimously approved the proposal to revive Class X board exams from the academic session 2017-18.
The first exam will be conducted in March 2018, after a gap of seven years. The decision will now be approved by the government before it is implemented. According to sources, it has been decided in the meeting that the final results will have 80% weightage of the board-based exams and 20% weightage will be the internal exams.
The Union Minister for Human Resource and Development Mr. Prakash Javadekar in the past favored the compulsory reintroduction of the Class X board exam for students affiliated with CBSE. It may be mentioned that earlier in 2009, the MyClassboard lauds the CBSE governing board and wishes the students who are to appear for the board exams.
