The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has announced a set of guidelines related to shifting the schools for students of class 10 and 12 making the same difficult from this academic session.
In its guidelines, the CBSE has advised students not to shift their schools while they are in class 10 and 12 until it is inevitable. Issuing strict guidelines in this regard, the board has instructed such students to give appropriate reasons in this regard as the grounds of better education will not be accepted by the board.
However, the board will accept the reasons like parents’ transfer, distance between school and residence, among others for students to shift their school in class 10 and 12.
The Board has released the circular mentioning the list of documents to allow direct admission in Classes 10 and 12. Transfers, family shifting and medical grounds require documents like copy of transfer orders of the parents, new address proof etc.
The Board suggests the students not to change their schools while they are in class 10 and 12 as the registration process for board exam starts from classes 9 and 11 respectively. A student seeking change in school in class 10 and 12 increases the paper work and the chances of error.
From now onwards, students planning to shift for ‘better education’ will be required to furnish the requisite documents and both the schools (admitting and leaving) will also be required to attach the records of the previous 5 years of CBSE Board Results.
