Board exams for 10th standard, now a compulsary norm:
Board exams for Class X are set to become compulsory for all Central Board of Secondary Education students from 2018 as the CBSE’s governing body “unanimously approved” a proposal in this regard.
The decision will now have to be approved by the government before it is implemented.
Currently, it is optional for CBSE students. They can choose between the Board exam or a school-based examination.
