CBSE will review Class X optional board exams and the Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation (CCE), which is currently followed in affiliated schools. It will take into account input from all stakeholders with the objective of reducing redundancies and inefficiencies.

Class X exam format has becomes very confusing with key stakeholders believing that CCE based exams can be removable.

This review was started after many schools and state governments agreed to again make the CCE optional exam compulsory.

A committee will recommend changes in examination affiliation rules and regulations along with provisions to allow students to apply for certificates from any regional office.

The old arcane rules were only modified with time with no clear policy structure. A constitutional committee have headed by former controller of examinations Pavnesh Kumar will now focus on improvement of the examination system.
