CBSE may give attendance relaxations to Kashmiri examinees

Last Updated: Tuesday, September 28, 2010 - 16:18

New Delhi: In a move which could bring
cheers to students in Kashmir valley appearing for their board examinations next year, the CBSE has said it will take a "sympathetic view" on providing relaxations to them on matters
of attendance.

The development comes after a school in the valley
approached the CBSE with the issue as the days of unrest in
the state had left schools closed for over 100 days.

Sources in the Board said that given the situation the
students had to undergo, the Board will take a "sympathetic
view" on the issue of providing relaxations to them on matters
of attendance.

Indications are that several more CBSE-affiliated schools
are also planning to approach the Board.

CBSE`s stand may reduce the anxieties of students as CBSE
rule mandates a minimum of 75 per cent attendance in classes
for appearing in the class X and class XII examinations.

Sources said the Board was also exploring how to help the
students catch up with the syllabus.
