The discrepancies existing between Board of Secondary Education Assam (SEBA) and Central Board of Secondary Education(CBSE) has always made their presence felt among the students with students from both the boards comparing on which board is more tougher or better!

Moreover, the tug of war for scores makes its essence felt during the results of 10th and 12th examinations and prior to the further admission processes.

Presently with the form fill-up results coming out and merit lists making it rounds, the differences and comparisons have already made its way up through.

Because of the COVID situation, all the students studying and residing out of the State have made their way back and are planning to get admitted to the colleges and institutions in the respective States. This has again made a significant competing situation for the students to gain a seat which has become really demanding with the increasing students' number.

The marking system of CBSE has always clashed with SEBA, students from SEBA are of the opinion that students from CBSE score more marks than their actual intellect and that creates a hindrance in their securing of admission to good colleges. But, there's never any question on why SEBA is always so stagnant in their marking procedure?

This creates a grey image of CBSE being very easy in curriculum and it passing the students with too many marks.

The situation becomes really negative with the comparisons being made towards a particular board's students and negativity being spread towards them.

Students of both the boards need to clear such differences about the marking criteria because later they need to cope up with the environment with completion of the initial phase of higher secondary level education because after this phase, the further education system comes under State board only and there's no division there.

However, now the question is, when will these differences and comparisons end?
