The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) on Monday again requested parents to ascertain that schools in which their wards are taking admission are affiliated to it.
The advisory was issued after CBSE came to know that certain schools were admitting students without having its affiliation. Such incidents have been reported from all over the country. It was first revealed after the parents of a student, who was admitted “to a CBSE affiliated school”, found that the school had not obtained the affiliation.
It is mandatory for a school to have Classes IX and X to qualify for CBSE affiliation. The Central Board’s regional officer AS Verma said there have been instances of schools running classes upto VIII but claiming to have CBSE affiliation. It is done to deceive students and their parents, he added.
