CBSE: Central Board of Secondary Education
The full form of CBSE is Central Board of Secondary Education. It is a national-level board of education in India for public and private schools, controlled and managed by the Union Government of India (GoI). Most states in India have schools that offer CBSE, ICSE and State Board programs to students. The number of CBSE schools is considerably higher than any other board of education.
CBSE conducts the final examination for class 10 and class 12 every year in the month of March. The results are declared by the end of May. The board had earlier conducted the AIEEE exam 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 exam is now called JEE(Main) and hence it is conducted by the National Testing Agency.
