Advantages of CCE System in CBSE CCE helps in reducing stress of students by – * Identifying learning progress of students at regular time intervals on small portions of content. * Employing a variety of remedial measures of teaching based on learning needs and potential of different students. * Desisting from using negative comments on the learner’s performance. * Encouraging learning through employment of a variety of teaching aids and techniques. * Involving learners actively in the learning process. * Recognizing and encouraging specific abilities of students, who do not excel in academics but perform well in other co-curricular areas.
CCE helps in improving student’s performance by identifying his/her learning difficulties at regular time intervals right from the beginning of the academic session and employing suitable remedial measures for enhancing their learning performance Scheme of CCE is expected to help the child make informed choice of subjects in class XI based on his aptitude, interests, liking, and academic performance. 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 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.

There will be tonnes of concerns related to this change, such as: l The grading system will be a kind of disadvantage for me and other intelligent students as a 99 per cent scorer will be awarded with the same grade as one with 91 per cent. l No competition may lead to less seriousness. l Easier the studies become, less seriousness will be observed. l Our rank will be decided according to the school. We will not be able to know our capability against the competition that other students of CBSE pose. Grading system will not help the students to decide their streams efficiently and effectively for higher classes. Parent: Parul Sukhramani Do you think your child is overburdened now? Yes sometimes, when they have loads of projects to make and side by side have to concentrate on their studies. So we feel that our child needs to pull up her socks to face the new challenge.

Yes, surely she shall take up the optional exams so that she does not miss even a single chance or a stepping stone of her studies and her life as well.
Are you happy with the CCE? Yes. We, basically, are quite happy to see our child working very hard to keep up the good work. Didadvantages NEGATIVE POINTS: 1. YOU BEGIN TO LOSE THE URGE TO STUDY AS NO BOARDS AND LESS PORTIONS. 2. DUE TO GRADING AN AVERAGE STUDENT AS WELL AS A TOPPER WILL BE PLACED IN THE SAME RANK. Article Dear readers, I’m writing for the first time on this site. Since, being concerned with education of +2 level, I want to share my views on CCE system initiated by CBSE for the evaluation of all round activities of the students.
Undoubtedly, the system should be seen with all the broad- minded view- point, but if you ask the teachers as well students currently studying in CBSE affiliated schools, you’ll find most of them saying CCE to be a great blunder. No doubt, it has its advantages too— it will provide wider scope to the students to develop their various skills simultaneously; it will enable them to search their real talent- if its in academics or in other fields; it will also be helpful for the teachers o promote the students even if they are poor in academics but good in other related activities at school.
But the greatest question arises that will the students be as serious as ever for their academic performance? The saying goes ” spare the rod, and spoil the child”. Capital punishment has already been banned. Now, the students know that even if they do not do well in academics, they might get promotion for other activities at school. The parents who are well aware of the neck to neck competition for acquiring a job will make their wards work hard, they won’t let their wards affected by this new system.
They will go on motivating their children for quality in their academics, but what will happen to the students of poor families; the families where the elders or the guardians are not well aware of the the pros and cons of different systems of learning; what about the children of illiterate parents or the families living in rural regions of India who are unaware of the complexities of education and employment.
This new system will make them lazy and make them complacent with their mediocre academic performance because they will always have in mind they they are sure to get promotion even if they fail to fulfil the average norms in academic activities. They will just think of passing the exams, they won’t strive for excellence and nobody wll be there to tell them the hazardous consequences of such a laziness on their part. It seems as if the main concern of the policy makers at CBSE is to make the citizens literate but they are not the least concerned about excellence and level of learning imparted to our future- builders, i. e. , children of India.
