The results of Class XI is shamefully low since the introduction of CCE in classes up to class X. The CCE ensures pass of every student. It is further emphasized that the student should get admission in the same school. This criteria make the students less responsible and they get good percentage in class X without much knowledge expected of that level.
The students mainly get good grades in formative assessments in which most of the activities are performed in groups. Almost all students of the group are getting almost identical marks and grades. So, even a weak student gets good grades because he is part of the group. These grades scored by him ensures his admission to science group in class XI. Only when the result of Class XI comes he realizes that he is not fit for the science group (or any other group he has chosen).
The teachers of class XI are more worried where the administration wants 100% result out of these students with little aptitude towards the subject. It is high time that the system be reviewed and ensure that only students with aptitude towards science steam come in Science group as well as other streams.

CBSE IS TAKING STOCK ON THE EFFICACY OF THE NEWLY INTRODUCED CCE.
There has been wide complaint among teachers of higher secondary section that the standard of students reaching class XI has declined after the introduction of CCE. Students who do not have real aptitude and interest get admission to science stream because of their high grades which they do not really deserve. The system of education upto class X and that of class XI are widely different. The students find it extremely difficult to cope up with the level and standard of class XI science.
Many feel frustrated when they find out that they have reached the wrong place. They wonder what to do next. Many of them even get ready to lose one year for the right stream for which they are really fit.
Now CBSE has also started receiving the feedback from various sources and they are now taking data and analyzing what has gone wrong.
Do you find CCE wrong?
Is it necessary to replace it with the old system?
OR can it be modified and implemented effectively without harming the future of students?
What is your response on CCE? Post them as comments to this post and let the higher authorities read it.
