The Kerala high court on Friday ordered the state’s higher secondary education board to give enough time to students, who have appeared for their Class 10 board examination under the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE), to apply for admission to higher secondary courses in schools that follow the state syllabus.

The board approached the court against its earlier order extending the last date for students to submit an application for admission to Class 11 in state board school. Two weeks ago, the court while considering the petitions of a couple of CBSE schools had extended the last date for filing the application to June 5.

As per the original schedule of the higher secondary board’s last date for admission was May 22.

The court said there was no need for an adamant posture in cases involving the future of thousands of children while rejecting the state board’s contention of not extending the admission date further. It said at least 3 days should be given to the CBSE students to apply for Class 11 once their results were out.

The order has come as a big relief to CBSE students, who are still awaiting for the results that have been delayed.

Many parents complained that the delay in publication of results will affect the chances of their wards switching to the state board schools at Class 11 level. Many CBSE students switch to state board syllabus after Class 10 as scoring possibilities are high.

The result of the state’s Secondary School Leaving Certificate or Class 10 board exam was published almost a month ago. The higher secondary board contended that the admission process cannot be extended further considering the future of those who have already passed the SSLC exam.

Last year, 49,799 CBSE students and 5.3 lakh state board candidates applied for admission to Class 11under the Kerala education board.
