In Corona situation, no student from sixth to ninth class have to give the test. There will be no assessment. In other words, students of sixth to ninth class will be able to go up to the next class without examination this year. On Monday, the Board of Secondary Education issued guidelines clarifying the position of the state government.
The next academic year is basically starting from January. The admission process for the next academic year has already started in the schools. Students and parents were worried about how the students would take classes next academic year. Teachers think that the anxiety has been removed a lot through Monday’s guidelines.
In a guideline issued on Monday, the Board of Secondary Education said that It has been decided keeping in view the current corona situation of students from class VI to class IX. But whenever the school opens, the syllabus of the previous class will be completed and then the syllabus of this new class will have to start.
However, only the sixth to ninth grade students are mentioned in today’s guidelines and the schools are asked to prepare the students for the secondary examinations. The guidelines states that Secondary students will not have any selection test this year. But schools are requested to prepare their students for the 2021 secondary examination. Schools can take mock test if required.
According to a section of teachers, according to the rules of Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan, students of class V to VIII cannot be dropped. That means all the students have to pass. There is no legal complication in transferring students from sixth to eighth grade to the next class. What was going on was the problem with the issue of handing over the ninth grade students to the next class.
In that case, virtually all teachers and guardians agree that the ninth grade students will be assigned to the next class without any examination or evaluation. Although all the decisions from sixth to ninth class have been clarified, the state has not yet officially announced the schedule of secondary and higher secondary examinations. However, the state’s position has already been clarified on how much the two board exams will be on top of the syllabus. According to sources, secondary and higher secondary examinations may be held in June. So now the only wait is to officially announce the schedule of secondary and higher secondary examinations.
