The fact that the proficiency test is optional and those students, who are willing to take the test, are welcomed is awe-inspiring. Thus, the change is being implemented slowly and systematically; it’s not been forced on the students (unlike the CCE). This would automatically induce interest into the students’ minds; they themselves would come forward to take up the test. This is the right method of implementing awesome changes in the educational system. Way to go CBSE!
