The Bihar Board Chairman Anand Kishore has announced that from 2025, a total of 75 per cent attendance has been made mandatory for students studying in classes 10 and 12. Those whose attendance is less than 75 per cent will not be allowed to fill the matriculation and intermediate board examination forms.  Board President Kishore has said that the BSEB has started preparations for this. This information will be given to the schools in advance.

Bihar Board Attendance rules have also been issued for the board examination 2024. Under this, the board has made 75 pet cent attendance mandatory from class 9 to 12. According to this rule, those who do not have 75 per cent attendance will not be allowed to appear in the board examination next year. The Bihar School Examination Board (BSEB) had earlier clarified that this 75 per cent requirement is not combined and students have to follow the rule in each class.

For this purpose, an app is being prepared by the board. Students’ attendance data will be measured through the app. On this, the attendance will be added by the principals. This data will be sent forward every month so that security arrangements will also be completed. There will be no relaxation in attendance.

The Bihar board has earlier notified that candidates with less than 60 per cent attendance will be allowed to sit for exams only in exceptional cases. Those with medical grounds or cases of serious illnesses that require prolonged hospitalisation will be allowed to appear for the exams. A shortfall of up to 15 per cent can be waived by the board, it had said.

BSEB also reduced the number of festive holidays in government schools from 23 to 11. Schools have to follow a total of 220 working days. The Bihar education department head, KK Pathak cancelled several school holidays including Raksha Bandhan, Haritalika Vrat Teej, Vishwakarma Puja, Janmashtami, Bhai Dooj, and Guru Nanak Jayanti for this year. Earlier, schools used to remain closed for six days during Durga Puja, which has now been reduced to three.
