    CBSE seeks data from private schools over unreasonable fees

    In a bid to tighten the noose on schools charging "unreasonable" fees and levying "hidden" charges, the CBSE has sought data from private schools about their fee structure and increase in fees in recent years.

    The move comes weeks after the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) had warned private schools against turning into "shops" by selling uniform and books in their premises.

    "We have told schools that they should not charge unreasonable fees. The charges should be reasonable and there should be no hidden costs as that is the more irritating part for parents," Union HRD Minister Prakash Javadekar told PTI in an interview.

    "We have sought data from schools about their fee structure and increase in fees. Many schools have sent it and the data is being analysed. Schools which haven't sent it have been sent reminders and penalised," he added.

    CBSE had awarded up to 11 extra marks in this year's Class 12 exams

    The Central Board of Secrondary Education (CBSE) awarded as many as 11 extra marks the Class XII exams this year after the Delhi High Court verdict that asked the board to retain marks moderation.

    A report in The Times of India said that up to 11 extra marks in accountancy, 10 in mathematics and eight each in physics and chemistry were given by the board.

    While one expert said that it was not moderation of marks but "competitive inflation" of marks, another one said that such spiking of marks was harming an otherwise progressive policy of marks moderation.

    CBSE also gave up to 10 grace marks for candidates who failed to get qualifying marks. The CBSE Class XII board examination results were declared on 28 May, after a period of uncertainty over the board's decision of scrapping its controversial marks moderation policy.

The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) will announce results for the Class X 2017 examination on Saturday afternoon by 12 pm.

"The results will be announced on 3 June at forenoon," a senior CBSE official told PTI.

The candidates can check their results on the official websites — or
