- What is CCE?
Devised by the Education Minister, Sapil Sibal, the CCE aims to reduce the stress of sitting exams, by applying a more comprehensive pattern of testing and education that does not rely on formal end of year exams.
- How does it work?
It is hoped that by reducing a student's workload, it will have a positive effect on improving their skills and academic abilities.
New gradings are awarded to students based on progressive subjects and extra-curricular courses like, work experience skills, teamwork, public speaking and innovation.
By marking ability in this way, it is hoped that those who are not as academically talented, will shine in other areas such as music, sport and humanities.
