The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has recently released a circular regarding the submission of registration data for Class IX and XI for the academic year 2023-24. The registration process is crucial for CBSE to plan for the Class X and XII examinations of the students in the forthcoming year. The circular outlines the actions that need to be taken for registration of students on the Registration Portal. The schools need to convene a meeting with the persons/teachers assigned the responsibility to complete the registration. Only those students shall be allowed to appear for Class X and XII Board’s Examinations in session 2024-25, whose names will be submitted through the online process of submission of registration data explained in this circular.
The registration process will start as per the schedule given in Annexure-A, and the registration of candidates will be done through the Pariksha Sangam link given on the CBSE website. The schools are requested to plan timely submission of data of the candidates as submission of the Registration Data by adhering to the schedule is very important. It is also important that the data filled in is absolutely correct. The Board has already informed the schools to keep the correct data ready so that at the start of the Registration Process, the correct data for registration is submitted within schedule.
The circular also highlights the provisions of para 14.2 of the Boards’ Affiliation Bye-laws-2018, which are mandatory for every affiliated school to follow the Examination Bye-laws of the Board mutatis mutandis. The schools need to ensure that Bye-laws/rules of the CBSE are being adhered to in letter and spirit for submission of the Registration Data of the candidates, availability of classrooms, and the teachers. The number of students sponsored by the school should be in proportion to the number of teachers appointed in the school. It will be the responsibility of the school to relieve the teachers for evaluation in accordance with the number of candidates sponsored in each subject.
The circular also provides information about the features of the online system for submission of registration data. Before proceeding with the registration of students, existing schools shall have to update the data on the OASIS & HPE Portal. Only those TGTs/PGTs who are teaching Classes IX-X/XI-XII respectively should be shown as TGT/PGT to ensure the appointment of eligible evaluators for quality evaluation. The schools are requested to fill in the full names of the candidate, mother, and father/guardian. Abbreviations should be avoided as these may create problems for the students in the future. The schools shall take registration all possible care to ensure that the correct name and date of birth have been entered.
The circular also provides guidelines for the schools to follow while submitting the registration data. The schools must ensure that the students sponsored are their own regular and bonafide students only, and no bonafide student’s name is left unregistered. The schools must also ensure that the students are regularly attending classes in their school and are eligible for admission in Classes IX and XI and will appear in Class X and XII Board’s Examinations in the subsequent year as per provisions of Examination Bye-Laws. The schools are advised to offer only those subjects which have been permitted to them by the Board. In case, the school sponsors students in subject(s) other than those permitted by the Board, CBSE shall take action, and the candidates will not be allowed to appear in the examination in those subject(s) in Class X/XII, and disaffiliation proceedings may be started against the school. The schools should check the combination of subjects before filling in the subjects in the registration data as per Annexure-F (for Class IX) and Annexure-I (for Class XI). The schools must ensure that the spelling of the name of the student/mother/father/guardian is correct and is as per Admission & Withdrawal Register maintained by the school. The schools must also ensure that the date of birth is correct and is as per Admission & Withdrawal Register maintained by the school. The schools must upload the photographs and signatures of their bonafide students in Class IX/XI registration before final submission. The correct procedure for uploading the photographs and signature is given in Annexure-C. The schools must collect information about the annual income of parent(s) as given by them, as many organizations and states are awarding scholarships based on the financial status of the students. However, schools should not demand ITR/other income proof etc. from parents.
In conclusion, the circular emphasizes the importance of timely and correct submission of registration data for Class IX/XI for the academic year 2023-24. The schools need to adhere to the provisions of the CBSE Bye-laws and ensure that the correct data is submitted. The online system for submission of registration data has several features that need to be followed carefully. The circular provides detailed instructions and guidelines for the schools to follow. The registration process is crucial for CBSE to plan for the Class X and XII examinations of the students in the forthcoming year. The schools must offer only those subjects which have been permitted to them by the Board, and the schools must check the combination of subjects before filling in the subjects in the registration data. The schools must ensure that the correct data is provided for registration, and the information on OASIS should be filled in very carefully as schools will not be allowed to change the declared section/strength of students after submission.
