CCE system was introduced in October 2009 with an intention of reducing burden of studies on students and percentage of suicide. It was introduced with a broad minded concept of providing wider scope to students to utilise their inherent talent. It is equally applicable for students having good academic background and for students having talent in other activities. It will reduce stress and anxiety which students often face before and after examination. The dropout rate along with the fear and anxiety will be minimized. The emphasis is given on conceptual and experimental learning rather than bookish knowledge. It will motivate learning in a friendly environment rather than in a fearful situation. But the main concern is how far this concept has been implemented successfully. It does not seem to be effective as predicted by CBSE.
The grading system has given opportunity to score much as compared to earlier system but simultaneously setting of question papers within certain framework has forced to concentrate on limited peripherals instead of thinking the same in a broader way. Good students always perform well under any platform but they feel motivated when their knowledge is challenged. If options are given for chapters, students will definitely go for selective study instead of going through entire content of the course. Their knowledge is confined at their own choice. The concept is being developed in the mind of the students that even if they do not perform good in academics, they will be automatically promoted in due course. Earlier we could have demarcated excellent students and average students but the new grading system in no way has motivated students having high caliber. Due to grading an average student as well as a topper will be placed in the same rank.The college admission for higher studies has become tougher. We agree that under old system the percentage of suicide was increasing day by day due to mental pressure but the day is not far away...
