The central board of secondary education (abbreviated as CBSE) is a board of education for public and private schools under the union government of India.
CBSE - affiliated schools will now have to follow a uniform assessment scheme that stipulates a two-semester system. To make students more confident about facing the class 10 board examinations when they join the upper-primary stage in class 6, we have decided to implement a uniform system of assessment, examination pattern and report cards. Under the new system, periodic assessment is conducted. Students will also be given marks for notebook submission and maintenance. Co-scholastic activities will also be taken into account, grades will be given out for factors such as regularity, participation, output, teamwork, health and physical education (including yoga and martial arts).
