Digitisation of education has come a long way in the country. Today, parents are going through a struggle to ensure good education in schools. The choice to school or unschool has to be left to the parents and students. It cannot be mandated by the Government/ Controllerate. If my child is able to prepare for the Board Examinations without going to the "brick and mortar" school, then he/ she should be allowed to appear for the Board examinations. NIOS is not the solution, as you are discriminating them with respect to CBSE. Please unify NIOS and CBSE/ICSE/SSC and give all options of NIOS in the Board Exams for the student to choose. Student should get an option to choose which Board exam he/ she wants to give.

Education is a complete Business nowadays and the parents are the customers. Customer will decide what they want. The schools cannot force children to attend classes which they do not want to attend. Even reputed institutions like BITS Pilani have liberal policies regarding attending classes. Clearing an examination is the responsibility of the student and there is enough resources available through e-learning material on the open internet for a student to prepare for a Board examination. 

Secondly, even after paying hefty annual fees to schools, students are not being permitted to appear for Board exams if their attendance is not more than 70%. This is a criminal waste of parent's hard earned money. Responsibility of clearing the examination is of the student. Why should they not be permitted to appear, as they can prepare by self study/ digital resources too nowadays?

This is an archaic rule and needs to be abolished immediately. This will benefit all the parents and students across the country. 

Proposed Solution: There should be one common Board Examination ( unify NIOS and CBSE/ICSE)  and external candidates as well as all school candidates irrespective of attendance should be allowed to register and appear. Parents are paying huge fees and attendance cannot be a reason for not being allowed to appear in Board examinations.
