It's OK to make it optional. However, then one also needs to incorporate certain points like American education system, where there is no board exams for grade 10, but whatever are your points and marks from grade 9 to grade 12 go in your permanent school records, which reflect at the time of admission in Universities. This instils a certain level of discipline in the students. Just by seeing few movies, we should not form bad ideas about American education system I know that many people here would have a very different idea about Indian education system and American education system. However, at the end of the day, they have the best of instututes and take cream of students from all over the world.

So defintely doing away with board exams is not such a bad thing. Nevertheless, if the same is not compensated with the discipline of putting the marks and points from grade into permanent records, I am not very sure, if it would pay the desired dividend.

That day Mr. Jayesh might have raised such similar qn. Anyway, in a nut shel, I would simply say, it's rubbish. There are lot of things to do by the Govt. in stead of doing such unwanted and unexpected changes and that too in regard to the future of the future of the lovely students. Regards.

I am totally against the new option and by the way we are making our youngester weak in study. Students should convert themselves according to the demand of our country and not the country should bent before the weakness of students.

Sorry school wise evaluation makes suffered student. We cant confirm all the teachrs are genuine. There is a chance to shows partiality. Suppose if school has taken resonsible to conduct exam. They should issue ans papers to their parents .
