Failed Class 9 and 11 students will get another chance to clear exams: CBSE
Earlier, CBSE had decided to promote Class 9 and 11 students on the basis of internal assessments of schools including projects, periodic tests, term exams, etc. conducted so far
Students who have failed in class 9 and 11 will be given another opportunity to appear for school-based tests in view of the COVDI-19 crisis, the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has announced.
"The schools can conduct either online or offline exams for the failed class 9, 11 students. This one-time opportunity is being extended only in the current year in view of the unprecedented condition of COVID-19," CBSE Controller Sanyam Bhardwaj said.
"CBSE, in view of the requests of the parents and student, as a one time measure in an extraordinary situation, has decided that all the failed students of 9th and 11th will be provided an opportunity to appear in a school-based test again," a statement said. "Opportunity will be extended to students irrespective of whether their examinations have been completed and the exam results have been released or their exams have not been completed. This facility is to be extended irrespective of number of subjects and attempts," added the statement.
This test can be taken in all subjects in which students have failed, said the statement. "Before holding the test, the schools will give sufficient time to the students to prepare. Therefore all schools affiliated to CBSE will provide an opportunity to all the failed students of classes 9 and 11 for all subjects where students have failed," it said.
