A meeting of State Board’s Centralized Admissions Committee has been scheduled to be held on July 26 to decide whether to give admissions to the students of CBSE who passed school-based Class X exam or not.
The Cenrtral Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has not included those students who appear for School-based exams into Centralised Admissions Process (CAP) for the academic session 2013-2014. The reason for this CBSE decision is no admissions to CBSE students to schools of Maharashtra State Board. A meeting of Centralised Admissions Committee has been scheduled to be held on July 26 to decide whether to give admissions to the students of CBSE who passed school-based Class X exam or not.
According to reports, the Maharashtra State Secondary and Higher Secondary Education Board has been including in the admission process those CBSE students who passed the Board-held Class X examination. The reason pertains to to the thinking of State Board which considers its exams on a par with CBSE exams. The State Board considers school-based CBSE exams of not equal standards with the exams conducted by it. For this very reason, the State Board did not include the CBSE students in the Centralised Admissions Process for admissions to Class XI. According to reports, the State Board has made it mandatory for CBSE students to bring Rs 100 Stamp Paper in order to get admissions to schools of the State Board.
The CBSE has specifically decided to provide an option to students, with an aim to relieve them of tension, to either select school-based exam or CBSE exam of Class X in an effort to regular evaluation process. Those CBSE student who opt for school-based exam can take admissions in Class XI. However, the State Board doesn’t accept the system and disallows admissions to Class Xi in its schools.
Ironically, the State Board had issued a circular since past two years to admit the CBSE students who appeared in school-based Class X exam in its schools. However, this year the State Board is not recognizing the CBSE system for reasons better known to the State Board bosses.
