Most important updates for students

Above you can see the major changes that new CBSE students need to adhere to in order to apply for registration for the board exams.However there are 2 major points that students and teachers are most unhappy about.

FEES – the new fees for registration as well as other fees have been hiked by huge margins.Especially for SC/ST students this comes as a shock because the increase is about 24 times!Also the readmission fees are very high – but this can be seen as a motivational factor for students to study harder and hence not fail in any subjects.

SUBJECTS- The second major shocker was the change in subjects rule.The CBSE board has flatly denied change of subjects from next year moving forward,however at the same time they have given the option to change a subject only if certain conditions are met. These are :-


–  Applying for a request of change of subject before July 15th of the same academic year.

  • Writing an application highlighting why the student needs to change the subject
  • What and why is there a difficulty in studying that particular subject
  • Scrutiny of application request will be an internal matter and there is no guarantee that the subject change request will be approved
