(Note: For accurate official information, please refer to the PDF document attached at the bottom of this article.)


The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) plays a pivotal role in shaping the educational landscape of India. One crucial aspect of its operations involves conducting the Board examinations for classes X and XII. To facilitate this process, CBSE relies on the collection of student information from schools in the form of the List of Candidates (LOC). The accurate submission of demographic details and subject offerings is of paramount importance to ensure the seamless execution of examinations and the issuance of correct passing documents. This article delves into the significance of precise data submission, the challenges posed by incorrect information, and the steps that schools need to take to ensure error-free LOC submission.

Importance of Correct Data Submission

  1. Smooth Conduct of Examinations: The accurate submission of student data through the LOC is the bedrock of successful examination administration. When schools diligently provide correct demographic details and subjects chosen by students, it paves the way for a hassle-free examination process. Students can focus solely on their studies and the examination without the added stress of errors in their personal information.
  2. Error-Free Passing Documents: The information submitted in the LOC directly influences the data printed on passing certificates and other essential documents. Accurate data ensures that students receive their documents without any discrepancies. This is crucial for their future endeavors, as these documents are often required for college admissions, job applications, and various official purposes.

Challenges Posed by Incorrect Data Submission

  1. Post-Examination Challenges: Incorrect demographic details submitted in the LOC can lead to a series of challenges for students after they have passed their examinations. These challenges include rectifying errors in personal information, which can be a time-consuming and frustrating process. Students might face difficulties during admission processes and other official procedures due to such inaccuracies.
  2. Examination Eligibility Issues: Accurate subject submission is vital to ensure that students are eligible to appear for the examinations. Any mistakes in subject choices can lead to students being unable to sit for their exams in the intended subjects. This not only disrupts their academic plans but also affects their performance and overall academic trajectory.

Addressing the Challenges

In recent times, CBSE has observed instances where schools and students have not been meticulous in submitting accurate data through the LOC. This has led to a range of issues for both the students and the examination process as a whole. To mitigate these challenges and ensure the smooth functioning of examinations, the following steps are crucial:

  1. Thorough Understanding of Guidelines: Schools must meticulously review the CBSE’s LOC Notification No CBSE/LOC/2023-24/ dated 17/08/2023. Principals and staff involved in data submission should be well-versed in the guidelines outlined in the circular. A comprehensive understanding of these guidelines is essential to avoid errors during the submission process.
  2. Awareness among Staff and Parents: Schools need to invest in creating awareness among staff members and parents about the significance of accurate data submission. Staff members responsible for data entry should be trained to understand the importance of correct information and the potential consequences of errors. Similarly, parents should be briefed about the impact of incorrect data on their children’s educational journey.
  3. Zero Tolerance for Corrections: CBSE emphasizes that there will be no opportunity for data correction once the information is uploaded. The onus of submitting accurate data rests solely on the concerned schools. Therefore, it is imperative for schools to meticulously review and verify the data before its submission to the Board.


In the ever-evolving landscape of education, precise data management is paramount for the successful execution of examinations. CBSE’s reliance on accurate information submitted through the LOC underscores its commitment to ensuring fair and error-free examination processes. Schools play a pivotal role in upholding this commitment by adhering to guidelines, raising awareness among stakeholders, and diligently verifying data before submission. By recognizing the importance of accurate data submission, schools can contribute to the seamless administration of examinations, enabling students to pursue their academic goals without unnecessary hindrances.

    Its my request to the Controller of Examination to issue a separate letter for students and Parents having registration details of class IX / XI that can be issued to parents and verified from them in the form of undertaking so that later on in class X / XII no such issues of changing may come.
    Its also to bring in your notice that earlier Registration Card for Class IX and for Class XI was issued from CBSE later on downloaded (once) and issued for the students having space for taking the signature of student and their parent but that is not in practice now.
    I request you to make some arrangement through which Registration card can be generated for the students of Class IX and XI after completing the process of Class IX and XI registration so that the same can be issued to parents and get verified by them before the finalization of Class X / XII LOC .

    We are unable to update the OASIS portal for the increase in the no. of Sections for Class X. We have been granted Renewal of Affiliation w.e.f. 1.4.2023 with 3 Sections of Class IX & X two sections. However, this year 2023-24 the no. of Sections for Class X are three as last year Class IX had 03 sections. We have also applied through SARAS for the increase in section for class X, on the 28th of JULY 23 and have paid the required fees of Rs 75000/- through credit card. We have been checking the progress panel of SARAS on daily basis for the letter of Approval for the third section. You are therefore, humbly requested to please let us know the status for the increase in section for class X at your earliest.
