The Central Board of Secondary Education has raised concerns over logistics of conducting multiple board exams in one year and the feasibility of students taking at least 24 subject board examinations.
The board has expressed its amended reservations in the National Education Policy, 2019.
The Ministry of Human Resource Development has received over two lakh suggestions from various stakeholders, including state governments. Based on several contemplations, the final document of the National Education Policy 2019 is likely to be ready by October 2019.
The new policy states that students will be expected to take a total of at least 24 subject Board Examinations, or on average three a semester and these examinations will be in accordance to school examinations in order to not pose any additional burden on students.
