CBSE to start Class 10 board exams again

Human Resource Development Minister Prakash Javadekar has confirmed that the government plans to re-introduce the CBSE Class 10 board exams.

The move will take place only in the academic year 2017-18 and not the current year.

CBSE had made board exams optional for Class 10 students six years ago.

It provided a choice to students to opt for the board exams or school evaluation.

CBSE runs more than 18,000 schools and nearly 13,000 private schools are associated with the board.
