The CBSE is one of India’s most prestigious and well-known school boards. Although the CBSE received its current name in 1952, the U.P Board of High School and Secondary Education was established in 1921. CBSE’s significance stems from its efforts to provide a common education in this land of different cultures and heritage known as India. As a result, it has successfully developed a national standard for all. Its reputation has developed over time as it strives to make education relevant to a rapidly changing world while maintaining high educational standards in India. The introduction of financial market management courses, which began in the 2008 academic year, is one of the best examples.
In CBSE-affiliated schools, the CBSE prepares the curriculum for classes 9 through 12. Every year, it holds two major exams: the All India Secondary School Examination (AISSE) for Class 10 and the All India Senior School Certificate Examination (AISSCE) for Class 12, both of which are school-leaving exams. CBSE is linked with a large number of private schools both within and outside of India. It also specifies the syllabi for these exams, the results of which are required for entrance to higher education institutions. The CBSE recommends either English or Hindi as the medium of instruction. For direct admission to university undergraduate programs, the CBSE All India Senior School Certificate Examination for Class 12 is widely recognized internationally.
There are a total of 9,689 CBSE-affiliated schools in India and abroad. The Delhi Board of Secondary Education was united with the Central Board as a result of the rebuilding, and all educational institutions recognized by the Delhi Board became part of the Central Board as well. As a result, the Board currently has an affiliation with all schools in the Union Territory of Chandigarh, the Andaman & Nicobar Islands, Arunachal Pradesh, and the state of Sikkim. The Board has grown from 309 schools in 1962 to 5119 schools as of September 25, 1998, with 784 Kendriya Vidyalayas, 1381 Government Schools, 2486 Independent Schools, 355 Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalayas, and 13 Adhoc Schools among them.
The CBSE also administers the All India Engineering Entrance Examination (AIEEE), which is a national entrance examination for engineering and architecture/planning programmes across the country. AIPMT (PMT/PDT) Pre-medical and Pre-dental Tests are also held for medical and dental colleges.
The CBSE focuses on associate institutions for test purposes and to increase the country’s academic standards. The Board’s main focus is on introducing new teaching-learning approaches to the market by developing student-friendly and student-centered paradigms. Adding job-oriented and job-linked inputs can help to improve skill learning even more.
The Central Board of Secondary Education has met this national commitment by developing an unified curriculum with a flexible study plan that meets the needs of every student, regardless of whether they attend a government or private school. Regardless of geographic differences, CBSE schools and students enjoy and share common benefits in terms of curriculum, tests, and academic advancements.
