In an attempt to make it easier for students migrating from foreign councils to be admitted to their subsidiary schools, the Central Council for Secondary Education (CBSE) said Thursday that such students do not need to seek Council approval for admission to schools.
“In the aftermath of the corona pandemic, many families are moving to India for various reasons. Therefore, many students studying abroad in overseas councils join CBSE member schools. Since admission is given to students of other councils based on the equivalence of classes of two different councils, therefore, every time students transfer from foreign councils to CBSE, they apply through the school to CBSE to give them permission to enter grades 9 to 12 depending on equivalence, “the CBSE said in a statement.
To make life easier for such students and their parents, CBSE has asked to comply with the examination regulations, in which it has established equivalence with various councils.
The Board advises that if the foreign council name is not on the list, schools may temporarily grant admission, and a request may be sent to CBSE for confirmation.
