all main subjects, have enabled us to shift the paradigm from lower order to higher order thinking skills. An equal emphasis on scholastic and co-scholastic attributes under the CCE pattern has encouraged students to build not only linguistic and logical skills but also spacial, kinesthetic, musical,interpersonal and intrapersonal skills.
Holistic education is the need of the 21st century learner. The schools of tomorrow should continue to focus on skill-based system, rewarding creativity, original thinking and innovation through implementing massive technology. As we are clear that the purpose of education is not to create babus and pen pushers but thinkers and life- long learners, one size cannot fit all. Our education system has adopted a student-centric approach, that respects ability, recognises varied potential and is flexible not rigid. Deregularisation is here to stay. Even if the cut-offs go sky-rocketing in top ranking universities, there is a second and third choice available to students in terms of competent private universities opening their doors to them and providing them equal opportunity to rediscover themselves. There might be many Satya Nadelas or Rajeev Suris sitting in non-government universities or colleges who could really have an impact on the global scene one day. The mindset has to change to ACCEPT each child as he/she is, BELIEVE in his potential and CHALLENGE him as per his capability.

As soon as the CBSE Results were announced on Thursday i.e. May 29, 2014, not only the students, but also the teachers and parents were excited. Children were really happy to see their scores which were significantly higher this year.
Number of students scored over 95 per cent. It is the time of the year when students realise in most cases that if they had worked a little, they could have secured admission into SRCC, St Stephen’s College, LSR and other high profile colleges in Delhi University. High scores have become a cause of worry as the cut offs can even go much higher.
Special counselling sessions are being organised by various reputed agencies in Delhi-NCR for the parents and students.
I congratulate the toppers of my school and all-India toppers for making their teachers and parents proud.
Even if your marks are low, don’t get disappointed. Delhi University also has options for children who can do UG Courses like BCom and Political Science through correspondence through
