Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) in a new move from March 2014 board examinations for Class 10th and Class 12th will be providing admit cards online.
The admit cards for the March 2014 examination beginning from 1st March 2014 are expected to be released online in the first week of February 2014.
Initially, only CBSE -affiliated schools will have the authority to download the admit cards, but later students may download their respective admit cards themselves.
This new step will remove many hassles regarding admit cards and reduce stress for students. Changes can be made easily in the admit card available online, as compared to the lengthy process of changing information in the official admit cards provided by CBSE directly.
Currently, to make any changes in the admit card the schools made corrections, sent them to CBSE office, CBSE office would make corrections and final cards would be sent back to schools.
With the downloaded admit cards, schools can make changes, inform CBSE and the process is complete. Multiple cards can be kept for backup although the card used in the examination hall would need the signature of the respective principal of the school.
However, for the admit card to be valid during the examination, it will need the signature of the principal of the respective school.
