On the same Dr. Uday Nath, Chief Academic Officer (CAO),  BasicFirst has expressed his views, as below
The decision taken by CISE comes as a welcome for the students as  passing school will no longer be a daunting task. This will help the students to dedicate a portion of their time towards innovation, sports rather than focusing entirely on studies. India is already seeing the rise of young achievers, entrepreneurs and thus decisions such as these will help the students in achieving  the goal of overall learning rather than just learning”.
