The Council for Indian School Certificate Examination [CISCE] has announced that it will promote the classes 1 to 8 students to the next class without any exam. The officials of the council have come to this decision due to the nation-wide lockdown amid coronavirus outbreak. The students of Class IX and XI will be promoted based on the academic assessments, periodic exams, and projects that were held before closing the schools.
Gerry Arathoon, the Chief Executive and Secretary of CISCE released a letter to the heads of various affiliated schools to the council. The letter reads, ‘In view of the extraordinary circumstances of the global spread of the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) and the national lockdown, some state government have issued directive to schools in their respective states regarding the promotion of all students of class 1 to 8. You are hereby advised to follow the directives of the state governments accordingly.’
The Class X and XII examinations will be conducted for the students after the lockdown period. The concerned school authorities will announce the schedule for holding the board exams. In a recent statement, the board says that it is arduous for the authorities to decide when to release the fresh schedule for the board exams. Before commencing the exam, the authorities will give a prior intimation to all the stakeholders.
Before releasing the official announcement, the concerned officials have witnessed a lot of fake letters being circulated across social media regarding the postponement. To clarify, the Council has released an official notice on the official website i.e., at cisce.org. The circular also mentioned that the students shouldn’t trust the notices that are circulating on social platforms.
