CBSEÂ board is asking its students for their perception of the Class X public examination that it is considering making optional.
The Central Board of Secondary Education has launched an online survey that asks students, teachers, parents and principals of affiliated schools to share their views and concerns on the examination.
The identities of all those who answer will be kept confidential, the survey says.
This is the first time the board is involving children in planned reforms, which will affect them the most.
Human resource development minister Kapil Sibal has already held meetings with public school principals over his plan to make the Class X CBSE examination optional.
The survey asks students at schools affiliated to the CBSE a set of 46 multiple-choice questions on the emotions they experience while preparing for the public examination at the end of Class X.
