CBSE issues new guidelines for short attendance, poor marks in examinations

CBSE students will now be able to check their poor performance in examinations as the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has introduced new attendance guidelines for Class 10 and Class 12 students. Gone are the days when you would run after your school teacher to fix the discrepancies with your attendance. With the new CBSE rules, students will now be able to deal with the high number of cases relating to short attendance in the schools affiliated to it.

In the new set of rules, the CBSE has also specified the minimum required attendance for students, in order to be eligible to sit for Class 10 and Class 12 examinations.

# There are some schools that were not adhering to the schedule for the submission of required documents and certificates
