CBSE directs schools against starting the new academic session before April 1



The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has issued a notice stating that schools cannot start the new academic year before April 01. The notice was issued on March 17 and is available on the official website of the board, i.e.,

“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 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,” reads the official notice from CBSE Secretary Anurag Tripathi.

In addition, it has been noted that starting early leads to little or no time to carry out extracurricular activities like life skills, value education, health and physical education, work education, and community service for students.
