After receiving a series of complaints that schools are holding the admit card of the Board appearing candidates, the Central Board of School Education (CBSE) on Friday issued an advisory notice to all the schools asking them not to detain any student from appearing for the board exam.

The council issued a warning to all schools to follow the statutory Bylaws.

“Several instances of not issuing Admit Card by various CBSE affiliated Schools on the ground of performance of students in the Pre-Board Tests (conducted by schools internally) have come to the notice of the CBSE. In no case, heads of affiliated schools shall detain eligible candidates from appearing at the exam.” an official statement released by CBSE reads.

“Holding off admit card or not allowing the eligible candidate to appear for practical or theory examination in Class 10 and 12 is the violation of CBSE examination bylaws,” the letter issued by CBSE official KK Choudhury reported.

The advisory also remarked that some schools are charging Fee for the release of Admit card which should be banned immediately.

Stating that the board issues admit cards only to those students which have been endorsed by the schools in their final list of candidates. "Therefore, their eligibility for the exams has already been confirmed by the school and hence their admit cards cannot be withheld," said the latest letter to CBSE schools.

The CBSE board exams for Class 10 and 12 students are set to begin from 5th of March.
