As a measure to cope up with the crisis faced by the schools amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, Central Board for Secondary Education will resort to technical aid. According to the Union Education Minister Dr. Ramesh Pokhriyal ‘Nishank’, CBSE will introduce a virtual inspection method for the upgradation of affiliation. In a recent press release, ‘Nishank’ confirmed the latest development, mentioning that it will be a relief to the schools in the challenging times of COVID-19.
Why Such a Move?
According to the latest media report, many schools have filed for the upgradation in their affiliation since the number of students seeking admissions has gone up. These schools are already affiliated with CBSE but not until Senior Secondary Classes. This is a natural phenomenon that happens every year, but due to the COVID-19 pandemic crisis for the current academic session, physical inspection is impossible for CBSE. Hence, to provide relief to the schools and to up-grade their affiliation, CBSE will introduce a virtual inspection method which will be done online.
This move will save the burden of physical inspection by officers, thereby containing the risk of the spread of the coronavirus. CBSE is planning to conduct the compartment examination for classes 10 and 12 in September. Candidates can fill the online application form if they wish to appear for the examination.
