Class X board exams, which got discontinued in the year 2011, may get re-introduced from the next academic year, HRD minister Prakash Javadekar said.
“I want to start CBSE tenth board exams because all other students, other than CBSE are appearing for Board exams. But for CBSE, it is an option. So why?,” Javadekar said while speaking at an interaction organised by FICCI.
“Whatever I may change this year, will be implemented in 2017-18 cycle, not this year,” Javadekar added.
Javadekar said that the Government is also planning to bring in a new system under which educational institutions are regulated.
He added that apart from NAAC ratings, the ranking of the educational institution in the HRD ministry’s NIRF rankings will be taken into consideration to grade them.
