New Delhi The Government on Monday announced that it will introduce grading system in all Central Board of Secondary Education
(CBSE) schools and make Class X board exams optional from coming academic year (2010-11).

Union Human Resource Development
minister Kapil Sibal, during a press conference in the national capital, said: “Central Advisory Board of Education (CABE) supports making Class X examination optional in CBSE system.”

“There is a pan-India consensus over the issue. So we have decided to go ahead with this,” Sibal said.

The Class X board exams will become optional in all CBSE schools from the coming academic year (2010-11).

As per sources, the CBSE has prepared the format of an aptitude exam which schools can use to test Class X students on their level of understanding in each subject. The emphasis, however, will be on continuous and comprehensive evaluation (CCE) through the year instead of a single public exam at the end of Class X.
