The Central Board of Secondary Education (abbreviated as CBSE) is a Board of Education for public and private schools, under the Union Government of India.

The first education board to be set up in India was the Uttar Pradesh Board of High School and Intermediate Education in 1921,  the Central Board of Secondary Education or CBSE got its present name in 1952. All the government schools in Delhi, Chandigarh, Sikkim, Arunachal Pradesh, Andaman and Nicobar Island, Jharkhand, Uttaranchal and Chhatisgarh are affiliated to the CBSE board. There are schools outside India too that have CBSE affiliation.


CBSE conducts the final examinations for Class 10 and Class 12 every year in the month of March. The results are announced by the end of May.The board earlier conducted the AIEEE Examination for admission to undergraduate courses in engineering and architecture in colleges across India. However the AIEEE exam was merged with the IIT-Joint Entrance Exam (JEE) in 2013. The common examination is now called JEE(Main)

CBSE also conducts AIPMT (All India Pre-Medical Test) for admission to major medical colleges in India. This is one of the main reason why this education board is so popular in India and Indian students living aboard.
