It is a revolutionary step on the part of the CBSE to introduce the CCE scheme which now is being adopted by a number of other boards for its precision.
With CCE aiming at all round development of the child’s personality, it is expected that a student will be able to take up competitive examinations in right earnest. It may be clearly understood that introduction of CCE does not mean any less emphasis on academic attainment. Students will still be required to do well in studies. However due to acquisition of additional life skills, like thinking and emotional skills, they are expected to meet different life situations with greater maturity, linking their academic skill with practical life situations.
