The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has started the registration for regular students of Class 9 and Class 11.
Students can register themselves through the link available on the official website of the board –www.cbse.nic.in. The CBSE also directed all of its affiliated schools to register themselves before proceeding for online registration of their students.
The board instructed newly affiliated schools to contact the concerned Regional Office of the CBSE to obtain password for online registration.
In case of any difficulty, the CBSE also directed all the schools to contact concerned regional offices as per jurisdiction/contact details given in the Annexure released by the Board.
The Board has provided a field to provide Aadhaar details of the students which, according to the CBSE, “will result in accuracy of the students’ details.” However, the students who are not in possession of Aadhaar number may enter the Passport number, Ration card number, Bank account number or any other Government valid identity, said the Board.
Last week, the Supreme Court ruled that Aadhaar is no longer mandatory for National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET), University Grants Commission (UGC) and Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) exams. The court also directed that there is no need to produce 12-digit unique identification number for school admissions.
In case of foreign nationals, Passport Number can be provided. If passport number is not available, Social Security Number/ID Number issued by the foreign country can be mentioned, stated the guidelines released by the Board.
