The spelling of my name in the marks-list of my son in 10th SSC examination of the CBSE is wrong slightly. How can we get the name changed? Or, how the name can be corrected?
The present Rule of the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) regarding Correction in spelling of name or surname etc. lays down as under:
Correction in name to the extent of correction in spelling errors, factual typographical errors in the Candidate’s name / Surname, Father’s name / Mother’s name or Guardian’s name to make it consistent with what is given in the school record or list of candidates (LOC) submitted by the school may be made.
Application for correction in name of the Candidate /Father’s /Mother’s / Guardian’s name will be considered by the CBSE only within one year of the date of declaration of result provided the application of the candidate is forwarded by the Head of Institution along with the following attested documents:
(1) True Copy of Admission form(s) filled in by the parents at the time of admission duly attested by the Head of the concerned institution.
(2) True Copy of the School Leaving Certificate of the previous school submitted by the parents of the candidate at the time of admission duly attested by the Head of the concerned institution.
(3) True copy of the portion of the page of admission and withdrawal register of the school where the entry has been made in respect of the candidate, duly attested by the Head of the concerned institution.
Further, the CBSE Rule relating to Change in name of the candidate is as under:
Applications regarding changes in name or surname of candidates may be considered, provided the changes have been admitted by the Court of law and notified in the Government Gazette before the publication of the result of the candidate.
So, please make the necessary application in accordance with these rules.
