After class 10th exams, students are unable to decide which stream to chose and even if they chose one, by the time the result is out the school force them to change it as their percentage is not high enough for it. This has been done for a long period of time till the grading system was introduced. Although criticized, this CCE board system has reduced the evil will of the schools to shove students into a stream based on their percentage. Now thanks to the grading system, most students get enough good grades to chose any stream they like, they no longer have to score greater than 85% to get science with computers.
It is good that the time has changed now but the schools are also forced to find a new way of allotting streams to the students which they either do by conducting a test after the boards for stream allotting or they allot it on the basis of the students pre-board/unit test result.
It is understood that some schools resort to practice of forcing students to change their subjects/streams in class XI after the class X results are declared and the students are often forced to change their subject combinations.
This is a very important issue as the student lose his precious time, money and himself in this. For their help High Court of Delhi has issued a notice to the principals of schools as a result of the case that was filed in the Hon’ble High Court of Delhi, and the brief facts of the case are that in a particular schools. on account of wrong calculation of the grade. a particular combination of subjects were allotted to a student subsequently, the said student was asked to pursue some other combination of subject. In order to avoid hardship to the students, on account of change of stream certain guidelines were given to the schools and will be followed by all the schools affiliated to the CBSE for dealing with such instances:
(a) Schools shall not claim any fee from the parent/student for the past period and adjust the fee already deposited by him towards the fee shall be payable for the next period.
(b) Schools shall make good the loss of classes in the commerce stream (or other stream/subjects) suffered by the student, by giving them special coaching classes without burdening them and their parents with any additional fee for the same.
(c) Further, schools shall bear the burden of all the expenses, to be incurred by the students/his parents in buying a second set of books and study materials for the allocated subject/stream and reimburse them on the basis of the bills produced by them.
It’s good that students can chose any stream he like but its important for him to understand that if the stream he selected is really meant for him or not, students have to make up their mind and know where they stand even before you the board exams so that you take the extra classes of the stream you will eventually end up with as you know many schools follow the practice of starting class XI along with other classes in the month of April before the announcement of the result of class X Board examination and accordingly allow them to select the subject’s choice/stream in the new academic session to utilize the period before summer vacation for instructional purposes. According to the Hon’ble High court of Delhi this is a correct practice academically so that the children may remain busy with meaningful activities.
So chose wisely as your future depends on this very decision. Decide what you want to do in your life and will the stream help you in it?
