DNA Reported that some board official of CBSE told them that the board was yet to take a
final call on making Class XII exam optional in the near future.

As the students, parents and teachers of central board of secondary education (CBSE) has given full support in making Class X board exam optional. So board should make the class XII board exam optional.

The CBSE made Class X board exams optional from 2011, as part of its Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation (CCE) system, which had been introduced for Class IX in 2009-10. Although there was some apprehension among parents, the number of students who opted out of the board examination showed that the scheme was popular.

CBSE is one of the 41 boards in the country. Around 11,550 schools in India are affiliated to the board. The board also has 153 affiliated schools in 23 foreign countries.
