Direct Admission in Class X and XII in CBSE School

Number of students change the school while studying in class X or XII on the ground of shifting of Family, better education, distance, medical ground, etc. In order to ensure better adaptability to the academic environment of new school, students desirous of changing school may be advised to change school while studying in class IX or in XI. 

In April 2019, CBSE has trued to take a more wholesome view of the problem and has made it relatively easier now from what it used to be for School and Students.

This is what the Examination Bye-Laws says;

As the syllabus prescribed at Secondary level is of two years integrated course, no admission shall be taken in Class X directly. A student shall not be allowed to migrate from one “School” to another during the session after his name has been sent to the Board for the Secondary School(Class X) and Senior School Certificate(Class XII) Examinations. This condition may be waived only in special circumstances by the Chairman.

In case of all such admissions, the schools would obtain post facto approval of the Board within one month of admission of the student.

Here is the list of Categories under which the Schools can entertain Direct Admissions and the formalities to be fulfilled by the School at the time of Admissions

      Dear Saba,
      There is no problem from the CBSE if your son is looking to get admission in Class X, CBSE will accept applications from the schools till 15 July and post that they can apply to the concerned regional office by 21 July. There is notice dated 05.04.2019 where CBSE has mentioned all the details.

      The school where are you looking to get admission should be ready to take the pain of doing the documentation with the CBSE, that is the reason a few of the schools are reluctant to admit students. There are charges Rs 1000/ Rs 5000 depending upon the reason payable to CBSE.

      The old School will send/give the documents to the parents who in turn will verify it at their end and will send to the Regional Office with additional documents. Post that RO will inform the new school about the confirmation of the admission.
