The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) is a national-level education board in India that provides affiliation to schools across the country. It is under the purview of the Ministry of Education, Government of India, and is one of the most popular education boards in the country.
The CBSE was established in 1962 with the objective of providing a common curriculum and evaluation system to ensure a standardized education system across the country. It conducts the All India Senior School Certificate Examination (AISSCE) for Class 12 and the All India Secondary School Examination (AISSE) for Class 10.
The CBSE’s curriculum is designed to provide a holistic education that balances academic excellence with extracurricular activities. It emphasizes the development of critical thinking, problem-solving, and creativity among students. The board provides education in both English and Hindi mediums.
Apart from providing affiliation to schools, the CBSE is also responsible for preparing and updating the curriculum, developing textbooks, conducting teacher training programs, and providing academic guidance to affiliated schools.
The CBSE has also taken several initiatives to improve the quality of education, including the introduction of vocational courses, the use of technology in teaching, and the implementation of Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation (CCE) system, which assesses students’ progress through the year and reduces the emphasis on high-stakes examinations.
Overall, the CBSE has played a significant role in shaping the Indian education system and continues to be a preferred choice for many students and parents across the country.
