The schools have been advised to prioritise fairness and accuracy in assessing practical examinations and ensure the process is realistic so that it adds substantial value to students' academic journey.

"The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has detected, through advanced AI (Artificial Intelligence) tools, a significant variation between theory and practical marks in certain subjects among 50% or more students in about 500 CBSE-affiliated schools, based on past years' result statistics," CBSE secretary Himanshu Gupta said.
