CBSE is planning to introduce a major change regarding the project work from next academic session. CBSE students will have to complete their project work on the school premises and essentially during school hours.
Board chairman Vineet Joshi quoted in the Times of India that under Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation (CCE) scheme students would not be allowed to take or prepare their projects outside the school campus.
It is extremely common for students to complete their projects at home and some even take unfair advantage of this leeway given by schools. Students are known to get their projects prepared by someone else for a fee or copy it from the Internet thus defeating the purpose of CCE.
