Students moving to CBSE-affiliated schools from other boards will no longer require prior approval, according to the Central Board of Secondary Education. The board has made a change due to the fact that many students from foreign boards have taken admission in CBSE-affiliated schools amid the COVID-19 epidemic.
CBSE said that many families have been moving to India because of the COVID 19 pandemic. Many students who were previously studying in schools outside India are now joining schools that are affiliated with the CBSE.
Students from other boards have been admitted to CBSE-affiliated schools because of the equivalency of classes of the two different boards. When students were switching from foreign boards to CBSE, they were applying through the school to the CBSE to get admission in classes 9 to 12 based on the equivalency.
CBSE has done away with this process. The Board noted in an official statement that CBSE had decided that no prior approval is required for students from the Board to apply for admission in schools affiliated to the CBSE, due to the current circumstances and problems faced by these students and their families.
The CBSE has a equivalency list for classes 10 and 12 of foreign boards with similar classes as the CBSE on its official website. Admissions can be provided to students by the schools without any approval from the CBSE, read the statement.
