According to the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) March 21st notification students of classes 10 & 12 who will be appearing for the board exams 2021 can now appear for improvement exams in the same academic year and thus improve their performance. However, the opportunity is restricted to only one subject.
The initiative has been taken in accordance with the National Education Policy (NEP) which aims to make the exam low stake. NEP states that students should be given more than one opportunity to improve their score.
Earlier, the students had to wait for an entire year to appear for the improvement exams. Even this year, this old rule is applicable if students wish to improve their score in more than one subject.
