Global Aptitude Test for admission into CBSE’s Class XI
Since the announcement of Grade system by Ministry of HRD, India Government for class X students, CBSE Schools were enquiring about how they would offer admission to students in the absence of marks, students and parents were equally quizzical. Now, CBSE comes up with an innovative idea of Global Aptitude Test for Class X students, which will be conducted in all CBSE Schools. The marks obtained in the test shall be deciding factor in which stream a student shall get admission. Weightage shall also be given to performance in class IX and X examination. The students willing to change school from in Class XI shall require appearing in Online Entrance Examination, the marks of which shall be accepted by all CBSE Schools. However, the ICSE board has decided not to grant admission to any pass out from CBSE in Class XI and will not accept the grade card or the results of online test for admission.
