New Delhi, 15th September 2023 – The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) reaffirms the importance of the Self-assessment on SQAAF portal, as disclosed in the recent Circular No. Acad-107/2023. This comes as a continuation to the earlier circular no. 14/2023 dated 24th March 2023, available on CBSE’s SARAS portal.

Starting from the academic session of 2024-25, CBSE has made it obligatory for schools to submit applications for new affiliations, switchover, upgradation, or extensions via SQAAF. Furthermore, every affiliated school must conduct a self-assessment on the SQAAF Portal, with the assessment window open from 1st April to 31st December each year.

Schools Get a Chance to Revise Part C of SARAS after Informative Webinars

To help schools grasp the SQAAF process, the Board has successfully conducted 13 webinars, all of which are now accessible on the YouTube Channel of the Board’s academic unit. These webinars have played a pivotal role in clarifying the details of SQAAF for many institutions.

Taking cognizance of the requests from numerous schools, CBSE is offering an opportunity for schools to revisit and, if necessary, modify Part C (SQAAF) in SARAS. Schools that have already filled out Part C can make the desired changes up until 30th September 2023. For guidance on revising Part C, schools are directed to refer to Annexure A.

The Board encourages schools with queries or concerns to reach out directly via email at
