CBSE psychological counseling center enters its 25th year

The CBSE Class 10 English exam took place yesterday, 27th April 2022. The board has started providing free psychological counseling in two phases.

The standard has been followed since 1998. Guidance is provided to students before the exam and after the result.

Its main aim has been to keep students in class 10 and 12 at CBSE-affiliated schools stress-free during the exam.


The council provides advice through tele-counselling provided voluntarily by principals and trained counselors from CBSE-affiliated schools via a toll-free number.

Advice is also given through suggestions and information via the IVRS or question and answer columns in national newspapers.

The board also communicates with students on social media.

Audiovisual content on the “counselling” micro-link under the “Media and Public Relations” tab is available on the Commission’s website, www.cbse.nic.

Multimedia content on various topics such as specific learning disabilities, substance abuse disorders, individual adolescent experiences, aggression, depression, internet addiction disorders, exam stress and their solutions through life skills can also be viewed and listened to.

Apart from this, podcasts are also available on various topics.

A special telecare facility was launched by the Council even during Covid-19.



The free IVRS service is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week on the Commission’s toll free number 1800 11 8004.


Tele-advice is a voluntary and free service which is provided by the Council from Monday to Saturday, from 9:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.

This year, 92 directors and advisers from India and other countries around the world including Nepal, Moscow, Saudi Arabia, America, Japan, UAE, Kuwait, Qatar, Oman and Singapore , participated.
