CBSE to tightly regulate change of subjects in class 10 and 12

Change of subjects is not to be allowed in class 10 and 12 according to the recent directives issued by the CBSE. The board has directed the schools affiliated to it to stop entertaining any request for changing the subjects in class 10 and 12 on account of agreement of parents to make their own arrangements for studies in the newly chosen subjects by their children.

For any changes in the subjects the Standard Operating procedure will have to be followed.

The board officials reported that the students apply for change in the subjects in 10 and 12 on several grounds. Such applications will only be admissible if they are made before July 15 of the academic session and SOP will be applied to streamline the process. As per the SOP, the students will now be required to make an official application along with all the supporting documents.

Now, almost all the subjects will have internal assessment and the change of the subjects has to be minimized in view of that. Schools will need to compile requests of subject change and send it to the board’s regional office.
