Every class 10 student must have caught themselves thinking, why are there board exams? What is the importance of board exams? And why do even people emphasize on scoring good in board exams? Well, to answer all these questions it's important to understand the whole process of board exams from scratch.

For some students, taking board exams is like a nightmare. The horrors of taking board exams begin when everyone around us starts to jeopardize the whole idea of board exams. Connecting it to failure directly.

Here is one thing that analyzing yourself in a class of 40 students is easy as compared to national level competition. The marks giving system, percentile or CGPA method will give you an idea where you stand among others. Are you a competitor to others or not? Is your rank among the highest students or lowest? All these answers you will get by giving exams. And this is exactly why CBSE board exams play an important role in students' lives.

Decide Career Path 

The exams play a significant role in understanding the academic and career prospects in a student’s life. It's an important step towards deciding one’s career path for the future.

The content of all the subjects that we study prior to 10th grade helps them to acquire basic knowledge about every field.

However board exams help you to choose a specific subject which you really want to study and opt as a career in the future. At this time students become mature enough to explore and discover their interests. Choosing subjects wisely is crucial because class 10th results act as an important deciding factor to which stream you choose.
