1 year ago
The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has launched a new mobile app for students in Classes 9 to 12. To address students’ psycho-social wellbeing, the Board has introduced the “CBSE Dost for Life” app. The app will assist CBSE-associated school students and parents in attending counseling sessions, professional tips, and job options after Class 12th, among other things.
From May 10 onwards, the live counseling sessions will be available for free of charge. The live sessions will be conducted by certified counselors or principals on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Students and parents will link to a Chat Box at their own convenient time (9.30 a.m. to 1.30 p.m.) or during school hours (9.30 a.m. to 1.30 p.m.) (1.30 pm to 5.30 pm).
The CBSE’s ‘Dost for Life’ app is currently available on the Google Play store. The Board is working hard to make this service available to all phone users as soon as possible. The CBSE Dost for Life app provides educational resources on social, mental, and behavioral problems.
Due to the second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Union Government had previously canceled CBSE Class 10 board exams and postponed Class 12 board exams scheduled for May/June. It has also been announced that students in Class 10 would be promoted based on internal evaluations. The results of Class 10 will be based on a criterion that is objective. The Board has requested schools to prepare the results by June 20, 2021.
