Just a couple of hours after the Tamil Nadu Board of Secondary Education (TNBSE) has announced TNBSE SSLC Class 10th results 2017 at www.tnresults.nic.in, a majority of the students are planning to opt out of State Board curriculum and joining the CBSE stream.
It has become a trend and the practice is rising day by day over the past few years.
The reason behind this ongoing trend is the syllabus of the National Eligibility cum Entrance Text (NEET) being similar to the syllabus of those schools affiliated to CBSE.
The craze began to rise ever since NEET was being made mandatory for medical admissions.
According to various CBSE schools in the city they have already get a number of enquiries from parents about the admission process for enrolling their children in Class XI.
"The demand for the biology group has been extremely high and we have got several enquiries. Though it started last year, this year since the NEET was conducted, the numbers have increased", Amudha Lakshmi, principal of Chettinad Vidyashram School was quoted while interacting with the reporters.
"It will be extremely tough for us to accommodate State board students since the numbers in our Class X are already high", vice-principal of a city school said further.
Though the results for the CBSE Class X and XII exams have not been declared yet, all the CBSE affiliated schools across the city are being flooded with a bunch of admission quearies.
The latest media reports suggests that inspite of this execive demand the CBSE schools will start the admission process only after the declaration of the result.
