The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has announced the promotion of students of classes 9 and 11. An official notice was issued on CBSE website, instructing all the schools to promote the students classes 9 and 11, based on their yearlong performances.
An official notice was issued on CBSE website stating about the same. The notice read, “It has come to our notice that though several schools affiliated to CBSE have completed their examination, evaluation and promotion process for students who were studying in grades 9 and 11 in the 2019-20 academic session, there are several schools that have not been able to do so.
This includes among others, Kendriaya Vidyalayas, Navodaya Vidyalayas, State/UT government schools, private schools, schools located in India and abroad.” The important thing mentions by CBSE is that all such schools are advised to promote students of grades 9 and 11 to the next grades on the basis of all the school-based assessments including project work, periodic tests, term exams, etc. conducted so far.
For any child who is unable to clear this internal process, (in any number of subjects), the school may utilise this period for providing remedial interventions, and school may give the opportunity of appearing in school-based tests, online or offline.
The notice also read that the promotion of such children may be decided on the basis of such tests. In view of the prevailing extraordinary circumstances of the worldwide spread of COVID-19 and the countrywide lockdown, and in view of the queries raised by our stakeholders regarding the academic future of students, the decision was taken.
