Pune: After observing that were some cases of non-issuance of admit cards by affiliated schools, the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has issued a strict advisory to schools ahead of board exams. The notice states that in no case shall the heads of affiliated schools restrain eligible candidates from appearing for the examinations.

The advisory, signed by KK Choudhary, Controller of Examinations, states, “Several instances of non issuance of admit cards by various CBSE affiliated schools on grounds of performance of students in the pre-board tests (conducted by schools internally) have come to the notice of CBSE. It is further noted that some schools are charging fees for the release of admit cards.”

The practise of withholding admit cards has been viewed seriously by the board. According to rule 15 of the CBSE Examination By-Laws, “In no case shall the heads of affiliated schools restrain eligible candidates from appearing at the examination.”

The board issues admit cards only to those candidates who have been sponsored by schools in their finalised list of candidates (LOC) of Class X and XII. Therefore, as schools have already confirmed the eligibility of the students, they cannot go back on the decision. If schools do not issue admit cards, or charge extra fees for the cards, it is a violation of CBSE Examination By-Laws.
