According to the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE), the class 9 and 11 examinations 2021 will be conducted offline. As per the letter released on the official website cbse.gov.in, the board has asked schools to ensure that learning gaps are addressed first and conduct examinations only after that.
A notification issued by CBSE controller of examinations Sanyam Bhardwaj read, “For classes 9 and 11, schools should take steps to identify and remedy learning gaps and thereafter conduct examinations by strictly following Covid-19 protocols as per examination by-laws.”
“We request parents to understand that only offline examinations in classes 9 and 11 will prepare students for the board classes next year and for competitive exams,” the notification added.
As per the notification issued by the CBSE, “Schools have (re)opened in a majority of the states and with the improvement of the Covid-19 situation, it is expected that schools will (re) open in other states/UTs as well. This will help students to attend schools to complete their practicals to prepare for the final exams… Teachers should focus on each student and access the learning gap.”
The board has also recommended that the process be completed in time to ‘preferably’ begin the new session from April 1, 2021.
