CBSE may give attendance relaxations to Kashmiri examinees

The development comes after a school in the valley approached the CBSE with the issue as the days of unrest in the state had left schools closed for over 100 days.

Sources in the Board said that given the situation the students had to undergo, the Board will take a "sympathetic view" on the issue of providing relaxations to them on matters of attendance.

Indications are that several more CBSE-affiliated schools are also planning to approach the Board.

CBSE's stand may reduce the anxieties of students as CBSE rule mandates a minimum of 75 per cent attendance in classes for appearing in the class X and class XII examinations.
Sources said the Board was also exploring how to help the students catch up with the syllabus.
