In a notification that was issued a week ago, the school education department had planned to hold the final examination of class 9 and 11 on the basis of the open-book system. However, the board has revised its order and said there will be no final exams.
Earlier, the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) had cancelled its class 10 board examination and postponed class 12 examination after Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s intervention. The CBSE will be promoting class 10 students based on an internal assessment. Speaking on the decision, Union Education Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal added that students who are not satisfied with the marks allotted in this system will be given chance to sit in an examination when the situation is conducive to hold an examination.
Honourable Prime Minister reiterated that the well-being of the students has to be the top priority for the Government.— Dr. Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank (@DrRPNishank) April 14, 2021
