The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has directed schools to adhere to its calendar and commence the academic session only after April 1st every year. The board said that a few schools have initiated their academic session earlier than the prescribed date this year.
“It has been noticed that some of the affiliated schools have started their academic session quite early in the year. Attempting to complete an entire year’s worth of I coursework in a reduced timeframe poses risks for students who may get overwhelmed and struggle to keep up with the pace of the learning, leading to anxiety and burnout,” the board said in the circular.
“It little or no time to carry out extracurricular activities like life skills, value education, health and physical education, work education and community service. These activities are as important as academics,” said CBSE.
CBSE further added that The Principals and Heads of Institutions of the schools affiliated with the Board are, therefore, advised to refrain from beginning academic sessions before April 1st each year and strictly follow Academic Session from 1st April to 31 March.
