The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) is all set to hold an Improvement of Performance Examination from July 16-23 to provide a chance to students who could not score up to their expectations or having compartment in the Class 10 board examination.
The results of the Class 10 board were declared by the CBSE on May 30.
CBSE regional officer, Panchkula, RJ Khanderao told Hindustan Times: “The date sheet has been issued for the students who were appeared in the board examinations this year in March and wanted to appear in the board-based improvement examinations.
Through a circular issued on March 2, the board had reduced the number of attempts for improvement of marks from five to one for the Improvement of Performance for Class 10. Thus, now the students would get only one chance to enhance their performance.
One of the principals of then CBSE-affiliated schools, who wished not to be named, said: “It is not clear to us so far, as the board has just updated the date sheet on the website and has not issued any circular in this regard.
“Moreover, there is confusion whether we have to conduct the Improvement of Performance Exam for Class 10 (school-based) on the same dates or the board will issue a separate date sheet. Also, if we conduct the exams after July 23, it will be too late.”
