CBSE to introduce artificial intelligence, yoga as new subjects 25-Mar-2019
delhi,Mar 25 The CBSE will introduce artificial intelligence (AI), early childhood care education and yoga as new subjects in school curriculum from the upcoming academic session, an official said.
A decision to introduce the three subjects was taken at a recent meeting of the board's governing body, he said.
"The CBSE is introducing artificial intelligence as an optional 6th subject at Class IX from the session 2019-2020 onwards. To enhance the multidisciplinary approach in teaching learning and also to sensitise the new generation, it was decided that schools may start AI "inspire module" of 12 hours at Class VIII itself," the senior board official said.
He said the board has also decided to introduce yoga and early childhood education as elective subjects at senior secondary level.
"The decision was taken considering the demand of schools supplemented by various reports that projected the huge requirement of yoga professionals and early childhood educators," the official said.
As per norms, a skill subject, at secondary level, may be offered as additional sixth subject along with the existing five compulsory subjects.
And if a student fails in any one of the three elective subjects (science, mathematics and social science), then it will be replaced by the skill subject (offered as a 6th subject) and result of Class X will be computed based on best five subjects.
However, if a student desires to reappear in the failed subject, he or she may appear along with the compartment examination.
Similarly, at senior secondary level, the board has advised schools to offer at least one or more skill-based subject as elective subject out of the 42 subjects.
"The board will provide necessary support and guidance towards training and capacity building of teachers and other aspects for the successful implementation of skill subjects from time to time," the official added.
Compulsory Sports Period Every Day For CBSE Students 19-Mar-2019
delhi,Mar 19 Students in classes 1 to 8 in a CBSE-affiliated school will now have one period every day for Health and Physical Education. The announcement is in continuation of the program incorporated last year where Health and Physical Education (HPE) was introduced for class 9 to 12 students and was made mandatory for all CBSE schools. The mandatory classes will start from the upcoming academic session which will start in April 2019.
The primary focus of the Health and Physical Education (HPE) classes has to be on sports, games, and outdoor activities.
The CBSE circular in this regard says, "The revised and updated transactional strategies, detailed guidelines and methodology for administering HPE (Health and Physical Education) to students will be available on CBSE website shortly."
With the implementation of this rule, all CBSE-affiliated schools will now have a mandatory period for physical and health education every day for students in classes 1 to 12.
The board had implemented compulsory period for HPE for class 9 to 12 students last year."CBSE has decided to mainstream Health and Physical Education for classes IX to XII with the aim of holistic development of the child, leading to a well-balanced individual in all walks of life," board had said in a statement.
Students likely to get 6 grace marks for error in CBSE Class 12 Accounts paper 2019 7-Mar-2019
delhi,Mar 7 CBSE Std XII students who appeared for accountancy paper on Wednesday are likely to get six grace marks after an error was noticed in one of the questions.
This is the second reported error in CBSE paper in less than a week, with the earlier one being in English subject which too was worth six marks. Last year, the board was dogged with paper leak controversy. This year, already two errors have been notified by schools with Std XII exam alone.
A teacher confirmed that the error was spotted in question no. 15 and they have notified CBSE about it, as per the protocol. CBSE frowns upon schools communicating such issues to media and hence, the teacher did not wish to be identified. "We have filled up the feedback sheet and sent it to CBSE," the teacher said.
Chartered accountant Vipul Vora, who also provides coaching for CBSE commerce students, said the issue cannot be just termed as a printing mistake of balance sheet. "It's a blunder. I just cannot limit myself to saying that it was a printing error. To explain it in very simple terms for even those from non-commerce background, what was printed in the question paper made it impossible for students to balance the accounts. If tonight your bank account is Rs2 lakh, and nothing is deposited, then tomorrow morning too the balance will be the same. But in today's paper, the amount differed," said Vora.
He added that this question should not have taken more than five minutes to solve. "But students wasted 10 to 15 minutes on this as they were unable to balance the amount," said Vora.
CBSE follows a set policy for rectifying errors in question papers. Schools across the country send their feedback within 24 hours of the exam being over. If an error is cited, the board looks into it and takes corrective action. If the board agrees that there was indeed an error, then grace marks are awarded to students. It is expected that all students will get grace marks, not just those who attempted it.
Apart from the error in the paper, most of the students found the paper to be tough and lengthy. Khushboo Daga, a student of Bhavan's, Civil Lines, said, "The paper was a bit tough as well as lengthy. The most difficult part was section B as there were debentures. The easiest part were question nos. 16 and 17."
"The paper was very tough as I wasn't able to tally the balance sheet. The easiest but the most time consuming part was section A," said Bhavishya Karpoor from Delhi Public School (DPS), Kamptee.
Another student from BVM, Akshita Nahar, said, "The paper was very lengthy as I took most of the time to complete receipts and payments from section A. Theoretical question were also tough and time-consuming."
Saiba Vij from DPS said, "The paper was very difficult, especially section A. The easiest parts were cost receipts."
Rajat Varma, a student of BVM, found the paper to be time consuming. He said, "There were two sections and both of them were time-consuming. Depreciation was the toughest in section B. Payments and receipts were the easiest part."
CBSE approaches Delhi Police over 'fake news' of exam paper leaks 7-Mar-2019
hyderabad,Mar 7 A probe has been launched after a police complaint by Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) regarding YouTube videos claiming that the ongoing Board exam papers have been leaked. The videos, which have been widely shared on various social media platforms, have caused panic among students appearing for the Class X and XII examinations.
DCP (east) Jasmeet Singh said that CBSE lodged the complaint at Madhu Vihar police station and the matter is being probed to take necessary legal action.
A video accessed by shows a girl claiming to have returned after giving an examination displaying several photos on her mobile phone of handwritten questions. In the voiceover, the girl claims that this paper was sent to her before she sat for the examination. She shows the time of receiving the so-called leaked paper as 8.30am. Question papers are usually distributed to students appearing for the exams at 10am.
The YouTube links claim to have access to subjects such as accountancy, chemistry and geography for Class XII. The accountancy paper was held on Wednesday. For Class X, the subjects are mathematics and science. The mathematics exam is scheduled for Thursday.
"CBSE has requested Delhi Police to take suitable and strict action against miscreants under provisions of IPC and IT Act so that the sanctity of examinations and several security initiatives taken by the Board to conduct fair and smooth examinations are not adversely affected," said a senior CBSE official. The Board has also issued a public advisory asking parents and students to beware of the fake news in circulation.
The investigating teams are tracing the IP addresses of the uploader of the videos. Last year, Crime Branch had busted a major racket of leaking Board exam papers. However, CBSE has denied any leaks this time and classified the claims on these videos as false.

delhi,Feb 28 The CBSE has advised students and parents to be aware of any rumours on social media ahead of board examinations and not panic. "It has been noticed in the past that certain unscrupulous elements spread rumours by posting fake videos and messages on YouTube, Facebook, Twitter and other social media platforms, obviously with the intention of spreading confusion and panic among students, parents, schools and public," the CBSE Controller said in a public notice.
"Persons involved in such activities are warned and advised to restrain themselves from such activities. In case, any such information comes to the notice of the CBSE, immediate necessary actions will be taken as per law," he added.
The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has also appealed public in general to cooperate with it for the smooth conduct of exams by not participating in spreading of rumours and baseless information.

CBSE Board exam 2019 to begin from Feb 15 14-Feb-2019
hyderabad,Feb 14 The CBSE Board exams 2019 will begin from tomorrow (February 15), which is 15 days in advance as compared to the previous year. This year, the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has decided to conduct the examinations for vocational subjects first and the exams on academic subjects will be held in March. Around 13 lakh students will appear for the CBSE Class 12 exam, while more than 18 lakh will sit in CBSE Class 10 exams.
The Board has made some "student-friendly" changes in the question paper structure of Class 10 and 12 board exam. The changes are aimed at making the board exam papers easier for students.
The Board has increased the objective type questions and options in board exam papers. In 2019 board exams, around 25 per cent questions will be objective type. In previous board exams, up to 10% of the questions were objective type. The CBSE has decided to introduce objective type questions to help students score better in board exams. This year, the students will have 33 per cent more question options to choose.
The CBSE Board has decided to make the 2019 board exam question papers in a more structured manner. Each question paper will be divided into sub-sections so that students can attempt the papers in a more systematic manner. All objective type questions will be into one section, followed by questions that are of higher marks.
During 2018 CBSE Board exams, question papers of Class 10 Maths and Class 12 Economics were leaked. To avoid paper leaks like last year, the Board will track the centre superintendents who are designated to collect "confidential material" via a mobile application. This mobile application will track each and every movement of centre superintendents starting from the collection of question papers from designated agencies till the time they reach exam centres and open packets.
CBSE to involve students in 3-tier security measures in board exams 2019 12-Feb-2019
delhi,Feb 12 The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) is about the begin the annual Class 10th & 12th Board Examinations 2019. After the debacle of the last year’s notorious paper leak, the board has introduced a three tier security check to ensure sanctity of the exams. The board conducted a web-workshop for the schools that would be participating in the exams. For the first time, CBSE would also involve the students appearing in the examinations.
This session, CBSE would be sending the question papers sealed in different sets that would be witnessed by different people at different places. The three level of seals would ensure that there are no leaks.
As per the reports and official notices, the papers would be handed over to the schools under a CCTV coverage and counter signed by the collecting person. This set would then be unsealed in front of the CBSE observers and two other examiners. The final seal of the examination papers would be broken in front of the students. CBSE has also asked that two students would witness the opening of the seals of the question paper.
Further adding to the measures of security, the board has asked the invigilators to be properly informed of the process. The students chosen to be witness would be random and never repeated. The process would ensure that there is no leak. Keeping a strict check on the paper distribution, the board has also developed an app that has to be updated which would mark the location of the paper collection.
Last year the board received a lot of flak after two papers - class 10 mathematics and class 12 economics paper were found to be leaked. The board had then re-conducted the CBSE 12th Board Examination for economics. To ensure that a similar incident would not be repeated, the board has this year put in place various checks. The board exams will begin from February 15, 2019.
CBSE Board to continue with hard copy question papers 7-Feb-2019
delhi,Feb 7 The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) will continue to conduct board exams for Classes X and XII via conventional hard copy question papers as it has decided to do away with its plan to have encrypted question papers.
While the Class XII board exams commence on February 15, Class X exams will commence on February 22. Rocked by a massive leak of mathematics (Class X) and economics (Class XII) papers in the last academic year, the CBSE tested centre-based printing of encrypted question papers in July last year. In August, Microsoft in Hyderabad had issued a statement over CBSE partnering with it to digitally encrypt question papers for Classes X and XII exams to enhance security and seamless distribution of papers.
A few city schools, which were part of the pilot run, said the board has now decided to have the encrypted question papers only as a backup plan. "While the pilot run went off smoothly, the schools faced a few logistical issues during the compartmental exams. Schools need to have required facilities such as computers, printers, continuous power supply, etc. If any of these are not available on the examination day, it may lead to glitches," said a CBSE school principal on condition of anonymity.
In order to make the examination foolproof this year, the board has put in place security measures to ensure safety and confidentiality of the question papers when they are transported from the printer to the examination centre. Until last year, schools used to receive all question papers in one go. For the first time, the question papers are being sent in three slots. All the CBSE schools in the city have already received question papers in the first slot and are expected to get the second slot in the next 15 to 20 days.
"The board has also developed an app for the centre superintendent and the custodians wherein we have to click pictures of the sealed question papers and send it to the board before we open them during the exams. The centre superintendent also has to enter serial numbers of the question papers in the app," said Narsimha Reddy, principal of Hyderabad Public School, Ramanthapur.
CBSE to provide counselling on how to deal with exam stress 1-Feb-2019
delhi,Feb 1 The Central Board Of Secondary Education (CBSE) will provide psychological counselling to students and parents from Friday to overcome exam-related stress, the board said on Thursday.
The 22nd edition of the psychological counselling service, focusing on resolving issues related to exam stress, will end on April 4 and will be available between 8 am to 10 pm on all days, they added.
From this year, the CBSE has introduced the facility of Interactive Voice Response System on a toll-free number from where the students/parents/stakeholders can obtain a pre-recorded useful information on tackling board exams which includes tips for better preparation, time and stress management, FAQs along with live telecounselling services.
The CBSE telecounselling is offered by school principals and trained counsellors from within the CBSE affiliated schools located in and outside India, the board said, adding that it is a voluntary, free of cost service provided by the participants.
The board has roped in a total of 87 counsellors comprising 65 from India, two special educators and 22 from foreign schools.For the first time, a comprehensive audio-visual presentation titled 'Knowing Children Better' has been prepared and uploaded on CBSE website, the board said.
"The various topics deal with real time experiences and problems of adolescents with suggestive measures as coping strategies. The viewers can access the tab 'Counselling' at," the board added.
CBSE experts will answer queries of students through weekly question-answer columns to be published in major national newspapers during February and an online counselling will be available at
CBSE Board may bring practicals in humanities 29-Jan-2019
delhi,Jan 29 The 2020 board exams for Class XII will see the introduction of practical and project work in the evaluation of humanities subjects on the lines of economics and science with the CBSE working on significant changes in its examination architecture.
The Central Board of Secondary Education's move to bring about changes in subjects for which theory-based learning has been the norm will also coincide with more objective-type questions in the board exams.
According to a senior official, there could also be an increase in marks allotted to practicals in subjects where they are already part of the examination system. The revamped scheme is likely to be in place for the 2019-20 academic session and 2020 board examinations. School teachers may also have a greater say in award of marks for practicals and projects being considered by the CBSE.
"The objective is to make exams more relevant and practical-based instead of theory-heavy which promotes rote learning. Therefore, there is a plan to introduce practical or project work in subjects such as languages and social sciences. For example, for languages, a student will need to do a project with 30 marks and the rest 70 marks will be a theory exam," said the official.
Currently, practicals for board exams are conducted in schools, but the marking is done by an external examiner deputed by CBSE. As per the reforms being considered, school teachers will be allowed to award a certain percentage of marks. "While it is yet to be finalised, school teachers could have a say in 15 marks, while the external examiner decides the other 15. This will be a balanced assessment as teachers who have worked with students would know their strengths and weaknesses better," said the official.
It has been learnt that CBSE is also likely to tweak the question pattern, increasing the proportion of objective-type questions in the board exams. Experts will work on questions to make them a better test of learning and dissuade rote studies.
"The percentage of practical marks might be increased further. These measures are all part of exam reforms under way. The changes however will be implemented from the next academic session so that the students and schools get enough time to adjust to the changes," the official said.

The teachers will share results of the KYA with parents of the students so that they can extend their support. According to the CBSE circular, the registration process for KYA shall commence from January 29. Students can appear for the test using the affiliated school's login id on any working day.

The module was being worked on for quite some time and it has reached its final form on Friday, the official told IANS.
"Cheating is an individual malpractice. This year we are doing something special to bring down the instances of cheating. We will be issuing a module to the schools by next week. It talks about why cheating is unethical and immoral. It will have case studies to that effect," the official said requesting anonymity.
According to media reports, the number of cases of cheating during CBSE exams doubled in 2017 from the previous year, rising from 56 in 2016 to 119 in 2017. The official said the number is around a similar figure in 2018 also.
he official also assured of leak-proof exams this year.
CBSE's reputation of being a formidable examiner was delivered a blow in 2018 when question papers of Mathematics and Economics for Class 10 and 12 respectively were leaked to the students before the exams. The fiasco resulted in re-conducting of the Economics paper for Class 12 students.
"I cannot reveal the security mechanism we have brought in. But we have put in place a system which will help us identify any malpractice if it takes place. The system has been strengthened at all levels," said the official.
The official also debunked reports that the board is conducting exams early this year due to general election, saying its "completely wrong" and that early exams have nothing to do with the elections.
“We are conducting exams a little early this year at the instruction of the Delhi High Court, which had said that the schools results should not coincide in anyway with the Delhi University admission. To that effect, the results this year will be announced early in May," the official said.

The board will first conduct examinations for vocational subjects. The board exam for core subjects will begin in March 2019. The board will release the list of subjects for which exams will be conducted in February 2019 and for which exams will be conducted in March 2019 next week on its official website.
The date sheet for the board exams will be released at a later date. In 2019, CBSE plans to conclude the board exams earlier than previous years. So far, board exams conclude by the end of April. This pushes the result date to end of May and consequently the re-evaluation result to July. With exams being over earlier, the result will also be released earlier.
The decision was taken after a recommendation from committee that was formed in April 2018 to make suggestions on ways to improve CBSE exam process. The early re-evaluation result declaration will allow students who apply for re-evaluation to not miss on University admission deadlines. Up until now, students who applied for re-evaluation were placed at a disadvantage since either they had to apply with their scores as given before re-evaluation or had to wait for re-evaluation result which often led to missing admission deadlines with many top universities.
The decision was also taken in light of Delhi High Court July 11, 2018 order which asked Delhi University and CBSE to co-ordinate result and undergraduate cut off dates.

Notice to CBSE over high fees 11-Sep-2018
delhi,Sep 11 The Supreme Court has issued a contempt notice to the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) for charging an exorbitant fee of 21,200 per subject for providing each answer script of the board examinations thereby violating rules under the RTI Act. The petition was filed by two advocates, Kumar Shanu and Parsas Jain, from an organization called the Whistle for Public Interest (WHIP) alleging that fees fixed for showing answer scripts was a violation of the RTI Act.
According to the petition, the answer script would fall under the Right to Information Act and the fees payable to obtain such answer scripts should be t10 as an application fee and t2 for each page of the information sought. The petitioners stated that the answer sheets were information under Section 2(f) of the RTI Act and therefore, examinees/students had a fundamental and legal right of getting access to their answer sheets under the RTI Act. A bench of Justices Ranjan Gogoi, Navin Sinha and K.M. Joseph asked the CBSE to respond to the plea within six weeks.
B.Ed students demand their inclusion in CTET 16-Aug-2018
delhi,Aug 16 The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) is ignoring the National Council for Teacher Education (NCTE) norms by not including students who pursued the Bachelor of Education for Paper primary level in the Central Teacher Eligibility Test (CTET) in its latest notification for Kendriya Vidyalayas, according to B.Ed students. Those who have qualified to study B.Ed are eligible only for paper II this time.
According to the latest NCTE norms . B.Ed students can be appointed at the primary level, though they are trained to teach the higher classes. Mr Ramdas, General Secretary All India B.Ed Colleges, said, "Nationwide, the number of diploma students are less, whereas Bachelor students are more in number, but primary teachers are badly needed. Also students who are trained for teaching class 9 mathematics can also teach II class, hence it would only be logical to consider B.Ed students for the pri-mary level too. Many State Eligibility Tests (SET) are allowing them for the primary level?' Earlier according to NCTE, only diploma stu-dents were eligible for Primary (I to VII) and students with bachelor's degree were eligible for teaching higher classes (VII to XII).
In the recent Parliament session, Human Resource Development Minister Prakash Javedkar introduced a bill to modify the teacher education with a four-year course, like the Regional Institute of Education (RIE). The bill was passed and it will be implemented after two years. Experts say that it was decided to give a chance to the current B.Ed students to apply for the primary too.
Students have taken to Twitter and are demand-ing CBSE do justice to B.Ed students by following NCTE norms. They have been tweeting with hashtags, #Justice4BEd and #primaryCTET4BEd since the day the notification was released.
A tweet from, Pradeep Tripati, reads, "Is there anyone left to monitor the functioning of CBSE, Many states like MP, Tripura etc following Central government instructions whereas CBSE is NOT... Isn't it a Govt compromise #jus-tice4BEd and quality education." Ms Soujanya Nanduri, a B.Ed graduate said, "We were trained to teach higher classes, whereas students trained for teaching primary school are trained to teach all subjects. The methodology with which primary kids are taught are differ-ent from that of higher class students."
