Promotion of Class I-VIII students without exams, X and XII Boards later: CBSE

Port Blair, April 01: The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) declared on Wednesday that all students in Classes I to VIII will be promoted to the next class without any examination, while students in class IX and XI will be promoted on the basis of their school-based assessments, projects, and periodic tests held before schools were shut. The announcement passed after directions issued by the Ministry of Human Resource and Development (HRD).
HRD Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal during the day tweeted, "Due to the ongoing #COVID19 situation and keeping in mind the academic future of students, I have advised @cbseindia29 to conduct board examinations only for 29 main subjects that are required for promotion & maybe crucial for admissions in HEIs. I have also advised CBSE to promote all students studying in classes I-VIII to the next class /grade."
In a statement, CBSE said that the board examinations will be conducted for 29 subjects of class X and XII at a later date. The Board said that "at this stage, it is difficult for the board to decide and announce the new schedule for the examination." Any decision in this regard will be taken by undertaking extensive consultation with higher education authorities and by keeping all aspects related to entrance exams, admissions dates, etc. in mind. The Board will give notice of about 10 days to all stakeholders before starting the Board examinations, according to CBSE.
