The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has outlined specific considerations for students participating in national/international sports competitions and Olympiads. If the student board exams conflict with the dates of national or international sporting events such as travel dates for competitions sanctioned by the Sports Authority of India (SAI) and the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) or their dates for international Olympiads recognized by the Homi Bhabha Center for Science Education (HBCSE), CBSE provides a special facility by conducting special examinations later.

In its notification issued on October 21, the board said that in such cases, students should submit a request to their schools to avail the special facility in the board’s main examination. They will also have to request SAI/BCCI/HBCSE for issue of participation certificate. These activities should be conducted in such a way that the school recommendations along with the participation certificate reach the CBSE regional office on December 31, an official notification said.

Regional offices will have until January 15 to notify of approval. The rescheduled exam will be conducted preferably within 15 days of the last exam held as per the 2023 Exam Board Date Table. Students, however, will not have access to this special provision for internal assessments, practical exams or compartment exams.

The board also emphasized that participation in training/qualification meetings is not allowed for this opportunity. Exceptions to attendance other than those permitted by CBSE will also not be granted.

The list of nodal officials of the Traffic Police and the BCCI, as well as the list of sports disciplines covered by each of them, is attached to the notification. CBSE has also provided the participation certificate form issued by the relevant authorities including SAI, BCCI and HBCSE.

As the Government of India has taken various measures to encourage sports among the youth, CBSE has also included health and physical education in secondary and senior secondary schools by introducing a daily compulsory place for sports and games. According to their interests and abilities, all children in grades 1-12 are required to play at least two sports. This is a prerequisite for students to pass their 10th and 12th grade exams.
