Subsequently, all the schools located in the Union Territory of Chandigarh. Andaman and Nicobar Island, Arunachal Pradesh, the state of Sikkim, and now Jharkhand, Uttaranchal and Chhattisgarh have also got affiliation with the Board.

Standardized curriculum across the country established by the NCERT (National Council of Educational Research and Training). The syllabus is very structured and controlled with standardized textbooks. No child can fail a class till 8th grade. Most entrance exams conducted in the country for college admission follow this syllabus. Board exams are OPTIONAL in 10th grade and MANDATORY in 12th Grade. Favored by those who constantly relocate within India or even abroad to countries in the Middle East etc and seek a standardized curriculum. Favored by those who want to go into the traditional routes of Engineering/medical.

The CBSE system also mandates Special Education. Children who seem to be having learning difficulties in class are referred to the school counselor. The counselor then observes the child and then may refer the child to a Special Education Teacher. Remedial classes may be conducted for those children separately by the special education teacher. Exam papers set for such children are done taking into consideration the adaptations and modifications required for such a child. For example, some children know the material but have a reading difficulty – For such children, the question papers will be read out loud so that they can answer.
In the CBSE System, instead of 3 exams like Quarterly, half yearly and Annual, there is continuous assessment throughout the year called Formative Assessments (FA) and one exam called Summative assessment (SA). There are two semesters.
- FA1: Formative Assessment will consist of 3 activities of 10 marks each: (Final Weightage: 10 marks)
1. Individual Activity (Making chart, model, project etc)
2. Group Activity (Skit, Model making, project presentations etc)
3. Pen and paper exam
- A2: Same as above (Final Weightage: 10 marks) Summative Assessment: Written Exam -(90% Theory, 10% Practical) – Final weightage – 30 marks
- Total marks per semester: 50
- Two semesters add up to 100 marks for the academic year.

Use in Competitive Examinations
The board earlier conducted the AIEEE Examination for admission to undergraduate courses in engineering and architecture in colleges across India. However, the AIEEE exam was merged with the IIT-Joint Entrance Exam (JEE) in 2013. The common examination is now called JEE(Main). CBSE also conducts AIPMT (All India Pre-Medical Test) for admission to major medical colleges in India. In 2014, the conduct of the National Eligibility Test for grant of junior research fellowship and eligibility for assistant professor in institutions of higher learning was outsourced to CBSE. Apart from these tests, CBSE also conducts the central teacher’s eligibility test and the Class X optional proficiency test. With the addition of NET in 2014, the CBSE has become the largest exam conducting body in the world.
The syllabus is really broken down into bite size pieces for students to process. The students get multiple opportunities through activities etc to prove themselves and score points and this way they get more opportunities to pull up their scores than just 3 exams through the year. Also, instead of just pen and paper exam, students can do projects etc which require different skills.
The workload on children is light for CBSE students- At a time only 5/6 chapters at the most need to be studied and therefore the rigor is not as much compared to ICSE syllabus. This is very ideal till the primary level. However, the rigor needs to be stepped up in middle school. The CBSE recommended NCERT textbooks are at a very basic level and not comprehensive. Since the children are used to such a light load till 10th grade, once they move into 11th grade, they struggle with the overwhelming load of Senior Secondary syllabus. Some children are completely lost. However, this system has been adopted by CBSE to ensure that there are fewer drop outs out of the school system before 10th grade.
