CBSE Class XI Admissions: Warning On Students’ Attendance Issued

Patna/Bhubaneswar: Taking cognizance of the declining pass percentage in Intermediate examinations, the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has warned the schools affiliated to it against giving admission to flying (non-attending) students.

As per reports, students are taking admission in Class 11 at non-attending schools to prepare for the medical and engineering entrance tests. If the Board finds any school taking admission of such non-attending students, stern action will be taken against it, said sources.

The CBSE examination bylaws state that a school affiliated to the board shall be eligible to take the examination unless s/he has completed 75% of attendance. If a student fails to do so, s/he is required to attend extra classes to cover up, reported ToI.

Reports are there that students are often preferring preparations for exams like NEET and JEE instead of regularly attending classes. They take admission in coaching centres and skip classes at schools. This is believed to be one of the factors spoiling the future of students.
