The 9th and 11th class students were given one last opportunity by the respective board to pass their final exams via projects and assignments in August 2020. It’s known news that all the educational institutions across the nation were closed in March due to the COVID-19 lockdown. The students of classes 1 to 8 in Delhi were already promoted to their next grades considering the coronavirus pandemic.
The education department of Delhi has decided to give one more chance to the students of classes 9 and 11. The 9th and 11th class students who didn’t gain the minimum qualifying mark in one or more subjects in CASE 2019-20 [Common Annual School Examination] will be given this opportunity. Based on the projects and assignments, the students will be promoted to the subsequent classes.
As per the latest announcement, the new projects or assignments will be allotted to the entitled students by 7th August 2020. The eligible students must submit those assigned projects by 18th August 2020. The corresponding authorities will disclose the results of the same on 28th August in online mode. The education department had to make this decision as there is no possibility to re-conduct the exams due to the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Moreover, the central government decided to continue the closure of schools amid the further outbreak of the coronavirus. On the other hand, some of the students who couldn’t pass one or more subjects in the final exams of 9th and 11th classes were highly worried. The new decision made by the education department is a sigh of relief to those students.
The Government of Delhi released an official notice informing the students about assigning projects and assignments to assess their performance. The circular also mentioned that the private recognized schools that hadn’t yet organized the exams again can follow the aforementioned procedure. This facility has been offered to the students of 9th and 11th grades who couldn’t pass the exam irrespective of the number of failed subjects and how many times.
The corresponding subject teachers of various schools will allot these assignments and projects to the students digitally by 7th August 2020. The circular further reads, ‘While allotting the assignment/project, it must be ensured by the subject teacher that words hurting religious sentiments related to caste, contradictory statement having a double meaning, and name of god/goddess, etc should not be the part of the assignment/project.’
