Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has directed all its schools to conduct online/offline examinations for the students of classes 9 and 11 who have failed in their previous attempts this year. The decision has been taken as a lot of queries from the distressed students and parents were coming to the board.
The board has taken this decision as a one time measure due to the extraordinary situation that arose because of the Covid-19 pandemic.
According to the board, opportunities will be extended to students irrespective of whether their exams have been completed, or results have been released. The facility is to be extended irrespective of the number of subjects and attempts.
Union HRD Minister Dr. Ramesh Pokhriyal shared this information along with the CBSE notification on the microblogging site, Twitter.
सभी सीबीएससी स्कूलों को निर्देशित किया जा रहा है कि 9वीं एवं 11वीं में जो बच्चे अनुत्तीर्ण हो गए हैं, ऐसे सभी बच्चों को ऑनलाइन/ऑफलाइन/इनोवेटिव तरीके से टेस्ट लेने का एक अवसर प्रदान करें। @cbseindia29#IndiaFightsCoronaVirus pic.twitter.com/hCRRJfmjhJ
