Muscat: For the 22nd consecutive year, CBSE is providing its pre-examination psychological counselling services to students and parents. The programme is designed as part of the board’s outreach programme which caters to the heterogeneous student and parent population and vast geographical network of schools.
The psychological counselling will continue until April 4, 2019, to help students overcome exam-related anxiety.
CBSE tele-counselling is offered by principals and trained counsellors from within CBSE-affiliated schools located in and outside India. It is a voluntary, free of cost service provided by the participants.
