Breaking News: CBSE governing body approves return of Board-based Class X exams from 2018.
NEW DELHI: The Governing Body, the highest decision making body of the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE), has approved the restoring of the board-based Class X exams on Tuesday, paving the way for return of the public exam at the end of the secondary education after seven years.

Since 2011, after the introduction of Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation (CCE) in 2009, the Board made the Class X board exam optional, which means students studying in senior secondary schools had the option to sit for the school-based exam.

A circular to the effect on details of the exams which will commence from 2018 will be shared with the schools soon. It will be 80% weightage for the Board based exam and 20% will be drawn from internal assessments," said R K Chaturvedi, chairperson, CBSE.
"The members welcome the decision and it was unanimous as there has been a feedback from all stakeholders , including state governments about the need to restore the exams," said Jyoti Arora, member of the GB, CBSE and principal of Mount Abu Public School.
The present batch of class X students will continue as per the current format where both the school-based and board-based options will be open.
