What is DBSE (Delhi Board of School Education)?

In 2021, the Delhi Board of School Education (DBSE) was developed. In order to promote advanced learning for senior secondary classes, the Delhi government created 20 schools of specialised excellence in four fields: STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics), Humanities, Performing and Visual Arts, and High-End 21st Century Skills.

Through an aptitude exam, pupils were admitted in Class 9 across every subject and Class 11 in the STEM domain at the DBSE-affiliated schools. Two terms were used to perform the DBSE Secondary Certificate Assessment (SCA). This year, the second round of term-end exams took place between March 10 and March 29.

Additionally, there were two periods for the DBSE Senior Secondary Certificate Assessment (SSCA). Between March 10 and March 27, the second term-end assessment was held. The majority of evaluation methods rely primarily on a final test with marks to evaluate pupils.

This emphasises the memorization of textbooks and rote instruction. Additionally, it has very rigorous guidelines about the courses that may be studied and the format of tests.

Since high-stakes board examinations are now a major source of stress for many children, and have a negative effect on their wellness, DBSE was established. Making assessments a regular component of the teaching-learning process and utilising assessments as instruments for learning rather than only to evaluate student progress are topics that are rarely ever discussed.

Students can develop their practical, creative, analytical, and problem-solving abilities by taking well-designed examinations. The Delhi Board of School Education (DBSE) was established by the Government of NCT of Delhi in light of this.

How different is DBSE from CBSE?

In contrast to CBSE, which is centralised across the country, DBSE is the state-level education board of education in Delhi, as the name would imply. The two boards have distinct curriculums from one another.
