Hundreds of students who cleared the Class X examination under Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) successfully have yet to accomplish a mission towards further education obtain the Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation (CCE) certificate.
Merely passing the first board examination of their lives has not proved enough. A taller task securing admission to Class XI in other schools in the state capital or in other cities on the basis of the CCE certificate faces them, a month after declaration of their results on May 24.
The CBSE regional officer, Patna region (Bihar and Jharkhand), S.U. Sorte, told The Telegraph: The CCE certificates will be issued by June 30. It takes time to do such things because not only the performance of Class X but Class IX is also taken into consideration. Many other factors matter. No student has come to us with any complaint.
Sorte added that in case any student requires the CCE certificate urgently, he can come to the Patna regional office. However, sources said the CCE certificate might be issued even after June 30.
Rahul Singh, who took his board examination this year, said: I have taken provisional admission in a school in Delhi but they are asking for the CCE certificate. Though I have got some time for that, I have to go there again just to submit the original certificate. Not only money it would be a wastage of time as well.
Another student, Rishabh, said: I have to take admission in a school in Kankerbagh but the school says it would not take me on a provisional basis. My school is also not ready to attest my CCE certificate that I downloaded from the board website.
A school principal, preferring anonymity, said: CBSE is playing with the future of the students. Most of the students are moving out of the state and they come to us asking for the CCE Certificate. At the most, we can attest the CCE certificates the students download from the CBSE website and bring to us. But many institutions refuse to give provisional admission to the student on the basis of such a certificate and demand its original hard copy.
