CCE a hit with Class 10 students
Till two years ago, before the CBSE introduced the Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation System (CCE) for Class 10 boards, exam centres witnessed heightened activity. But the centres wore a deserted look on Friday as students appeared for their mathematics paper.
With students giving up the idea of taking board exams for CCE, there were only a few takers for the former. Of the handful of children who took the exam, there were only 29 from Salwan Public School and three from DPS RK Puram.
“The paper was easy, but now very few students opt for exams as they have immense faith in the CCE system. So, there is little need for children to appear for the external exam,” said Mala Gupta, centre supervisor, Springdales School, Pusa Road.
Anuradha Joshi, principal of Sardar Patel Vidyalaya, said only one student appeared for the exam as he is taking admission in another school.
No student took the exam in Laxman Public School, Springdales School (Pusa Road) and DPS Mathura Road. “Not a single student from our school took the exam. Whether it is internal or external — for Class 10 it’s the same. You should take the exam if you are shifting your board or moving to some other state where the system is different,” said Usha Ram, principal of Laxman Public School.
A few, who appeared for the exam, said it was a good practice to prepare for the Class 12 boards. “I encouraged my son to take the exam as it is a good practice for future,” said Manvendra Sharma.
