Students in the UAE praised the latest Face Recognition System (FRS) introduced by the Central Board of Secondary Education in India (CBSE).
Students studying at CBSE schools here take advantage of the new system, which does not require candidates to enter their Aadhar number or mobile phone number every time they need to download their score sheets or documents for grades 10 and 12.
A live photo of the student is matched with the photo on the CBSE admission card stored in the repository.
Once successful, the certificate is emailed to the student.
Students using the system said it helps especially those studying outside of India.
Oishi Chakravarty, a student at DPS Dubai, who recently used FRS, said: “It uses smart technology. I sat in front of my laptop, I filled in some details related to the access cards, the lap number and other essential details. Then the camera took a picture of me and soon after receiving a notification. I obtained my electronic certificate and a grades sheet by email. "
Another student said, “The system is easy to access and the process is short and simple. It made it easy for students to receive their degrees.
Results data from 2004 to 2020 are also available in the repository. Almost 120 million digital academic documents are available on DigiLocker.
