Central Board of Secondary Exams has given a stern warning to schools against withholding admit cards of class 10 and 12 students ahead of CBSE Board exams 2018, scheduled to start from March 5.
Miffed with the reports of malpractices in several schools, the education board issued a notification on Friday, February 23, 2018, to make it clear that schools can’t withhold the admit cards of the students who are set to appear for the board exams on any pretext.
The Board recently received reports of schools not issuing the admit cards to the students who ill performed in their pre-boards. The Board also found that several schools are charging fees to issue the admit cards.
CBSE has warned the schools saying that if any student is not allowed to give the practical or theory papers due to the non-issuance of admit card, then it will be seen as a violation of the Board’s order.
The notification added that in no case can the heads of the affiliated schools detain eligible candidates from appearing in the examinations according to the Rule 15 of Examination Bye-Laws.
Explaining the motive behind the move, CBSE said that the Board issues admit cards to only the students who are sponsored by the schools. Thus, the schools have no right to block admit card of any students whom they have already finalised.
