New Delhi: The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) on Thursday announced that from now no prior approval will be required for students from foreign boards who seek admission in CBSE-affiliated schools.

CBSE, in a statement, said that in the post-COVID period, many families are moving to India because of various reasons. Therefore, many students studying abroad in foreign boards are joining schools affiliated with CBSE.

As admissions are given to students of other boards based on the equivalency of classes of two different boards, every time students shift from foreign boards to CBSE, they apply through the school to CBSE to accord them approval to seek admission in classes IX to XII based on the equivalence.

"Keeping the current circumstances and problems faced by these students and their families, CBSE has decided that now onward, no such prior approval is required by the students from the Board to seek admission in schools affiliated to the CBSE," said the board.

It added, "A list of equivalency of classes X and XII of foreign boards with similar classes of the CBSE has been hosted on the CBSE website. Herein after, admissions can be provided to the students by the schools without seeking any approval from the CBSE."
