New Delhi/Bhubaneswar: The students appearing for the CBSE Class 10 board exams have registration when they are in Class 9, and those appearing for Class 12 are registered when in Class 11. The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) recently released a notice to schools raising concerns over the registration process.
“Your attention is invited to circular no. CBSE/Reg/112510/2019 Dated 08.08.2019 wherein at Sr. No. 6 of page 3 it has been stated that “Schools are requested to fill in full name of the candidate, mother, father/guardian. Abbreviations should be avoided as they create problems for the students’ in future,” the CBSE release read.
Further elaborating on the matter, CBSE said:
Many requests for correction in the name of candidate, mother, father/guardian i.e., from abbreviated name to full name and adding of surname etc. are being received by the CBSE from the students after passing Class X and Class XII to meet the requirements of Foreign Universities and Passport etc.
Accordingly, instruction has been issued for filling in full name of candidate, mother, father/guardian during the registration of student for Class IX only.
It may be noted that above said instructions are not for Class X, XI and XII.
The students of Class IX only will provide the details i.e., name in full form so that no such request from the batch of current Class IX is received by the CBSE, once these candidates pass out of Class X / XII.
In Class X List of Candidate, the name of candidate, mother, father/guardian will be same as mentioned in registration in Class IX.
As Class XI students have already been issued Marksheet cum Passing Certificate in Class X, hence, they will mention their details in Class XI Registration in accordance with the Class X details.
The students of Class XII will also give the details in List of Candidates based on the information provided in Class X to ensure that their personal data of both Class X and XII are consistent with each other.
Schools will guide the students and their parents, and will also take all necessary action accordingly, while filling the Registration forms for Class IX and XI and List of Candidates of Class X and XII, the release added.
It is worth mentioning that the CBSE has increased fee this year. As per the revised norms, the Scheduled Caste and Scheduled Tribe students will have to pay Rs 1,200 for five subjects, while earlier they were supposed to pay Rs 50 for the same, a hike of 24 times. The general category students who were paying Rs 750 earlier, will now pay Rs 1,500 for five subjects.
